General description

-International Trade is in a general fashion about ensuring economic growth through the liberalisation of trade, which is regulated by the World Trade Organisation. To allow for the flow of goods across the world, further regulation or boundaries are necessary to provide legal certainty to the parties involved. Therefore, International Trade Law looks into the regulation of international sales of goods, modes of transport, insurances, financing modes, among other, which are essential to delimit the rights and obligations of the parties.  This course offers a comprehensive perspective about international trade and the interplay between private and public actors.
