About the Book

Thanks to its manageable size, problem-based presentation, and accessible writing style, International Trade Law is one of the most comprehensive and student-friendly trade law texts on the market. It is the only international trade casebook that systematically covers all GATT articles and WTO side agreements, and offers clear explanations of how WTO obligations are implemented in the U.S. and the EU.

The Second Edition has been reorganized for more systematic coverage of GATT. Trade in goods is now thoroughly covered before other types of trade, such as services and intellectual property, are presented. In addition, treatment of GATS, trade involving China, and trade and civil society has been updated to include current issues.
