In the context of growing international trade flows and frequent references in the national and international press to topical trade-related issues, this practical handbook explains how international trade law actually works in practice and how practising lawyers can use trade law to advance the cases of their clients."World Trade Law in Practice" presents international trade law in a clear, step-by-step manner, with short sections at the end of each chapter on how to find further information and explanations of key concepts and procedures. It describes the legal forums available to a country or firm with a case and how an adviser might be called upon by a firm, association or nation to use the relevant trade law. Using practical case studies, the book reviews the substantive rules covering tariffs, subsidies, dumping, services and intellectual property rights. A concluding section explains complex issues related to sustainable development and other emerging topics in a simple, clear manner.This highly accessible title, prepared by the Centre for International Sustainable Development Law, will appeal to partners and associates in law firms dealing with international economic law, corporate counsel in international and national firms and institutions, and law, economics and business management students.
