Overview

This new textbook on world trade law offers a unique perspective on this important subject in a number of ways. It is the first book to combine the best aspects of both the casebook and legal analysis approaches. It provides both detailed explanations and analysis of the law - to help understand the issues as well as case extracts - to offer a flavor of the judicial reasoning of trade adjudicators. Moreover, the book is truly global in outlook, being equally useful for students of international trade law in the US, Europe, the UK, Asia, and elsewhere in the world. For instance, where domestic regulatory issues come into play, the book examines a variety of country practices, to illustrate how the rules apply around the world. The book provides an ideal learning tool to appeal to students across the globe.
