Join the Institute of International Economic Law (IIEL) on March 9-10th for Georgetown Law’s 2017 International Trade Update (ITU). IIEL is pleased to again co-sponsor this signature event, a deep dive into the most pressing and cutting-edge international trade law issues of the day. The ITU routinely draws top government officials, private practitioners and other trade law and policy stakeholders. 2017’s program will feature the Inaugural Greenwald Lecture, given by Ambassador Alan Wm. Wolff, Senior Counsel with Dentons. The Greenwald Lecture is made possible by the law firm of Cassidy Levy Kent, in memory of their former colleague and friend, John Greenwald.
Why Attend? 2017 arrived with major changes and critical decisions affecting trade and customs law. There is a new administration in Washington, DC after eight years, and trade issues have factored prominently in the presidential campaign and the resulting period. New trade legislation beckons on the horizon and new laws will be enforced. Both lawyers and their clients need to stay abreast of all that is happening domestically and globally. As always, this “can’t miss” program will provide you with the analyses, insights, and solutions you need to address and solve your most pressing issues.
At the 2017 Update, you will:
» Receive a review of 2016 and insider predictions for what lies ahead in 2017
» Gain perspectives from top officials at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, the U.S. Department of Commerce, the U.S. Department of Justice, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection
» Network with peers, faculty, and members of ITU’s Advisory Board at breakfasts, a special lunch, and the annual cocktail reception
» Hear insights from the two newest judges sitting on the U.S. Court of International Trade
» Learn the inside view from Capitol Hill on legislative developments.
With 14 sessions, you can tailor the program to suit your needs and areas of focus. Whether you work in-house, as outside counsel, or in a government agency, this annual Update will give you the latest developments and analyses on trade and customs law and policy.
