Mexico - 1 December 2017

This online course was delivered to LLM students at Koç University in Istanbul by Dr. Amrita Bahri. The course focused on the laws, principles, functioning and jurisprudence of World Trade Organisation. Aim of this course was to enable students to understand the principles of multilateral trade and engage with the practice of international trade law with the help of current jurisprudence and hypothetical dispute scenarios. There was a special focus on WTO’s dispute settlement mechanism and the landmark disputes covering different countries, industries and legal issues. The students were provided one lecture for each topic (where they were explained the legal provisions and case laws), followed by a discussion seminar (where students were presented with a factual scenario that they had to resolve). The course outline is attached.
