International trade is increasingly becoming more important to practitioners (as evidenced by free trade agreements negotiated by Australia and other states), non-governmental organisations, and the general public. This course provides students with an opportunity to study select issues of international trade law in much more detail than can be covered in the introductory international trade law course. Increasingly, issues of contemporary legal significance are being decided by international trade law. They not only have effect on the international trading system, but also affect civil society more broadly. Examples include environment, labour, competition, and data flow. The course is useful for students who work, or want to work, for law firms, regulatory agencies, industry, and other entities related to trade law or who wish to understand the forces shaping the global and cross-border trade.
