As the leading student text in the field, this title provides both a detailed examination of the law of the World Trade Organization and a clear introduction to the basic principles and underlying logic of the world trading system. It explores the institutional aspects of the WTO together with the substantive law. New to this edition are examinations of the WTO rules on the protection of intellectual property rights and the rules on technical barriers to trade and sanitary and phytosanitary measures. Assignments are integrated throughout to allow students to assess their understanding, while chapter summaries reinforce learning. Exercises have been included to draw on primary sources and real-life trade scenarios, enabling students to hone their practical and analytical skills. The title is an essential tool for any student of the WTO, at either undergraduate or postgraduate level. Practicing lawyers and policy-makers who are looking for an introduction to WTO law will also find this title invaluable.

• Excellent introduction to the basic rules and underlying logic of WTO law and the world trading system • Contains questions and assignments to allow students to assess their understanding and develop useful practical skills • Contains helpful summaries at the end of each chapter as well as exercises on specific, true-to-life international trade problems intended to be dealt with in tutorials but also suitable for individual study
