This paper will provide students with an in-depth understanding and knowledge of the law and policies of present-day international trade regulations, both on the multilateral level (and hence an intensive examination of the procedural and substantive law of the World Trade Organisation (WTO)) and on the regional level (the law of Free Trade Agreements).

Special regard will be given to the ongoing debates on the ongoing negotiations on Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement. Students will be invited to analyze critically the status quo with a particular emphasis of intended and unintended consequences of trade law on other policy objectives. In particular the so-called "interface" issues (the impact of trade law on the environment, health and safety, development and other social policies) will be critically assessed in light of cases regarding trade in alcoholic beverages, genetically modified products, gambling services, tabacco, renewable energy, seal products and so on.
