Trade and Investment Law Reform Seminar by King’s College London [June 24, London]: Applications Open

About the organisation:

King’s College London was founded by King George IV and the Duke of Wellington (then Prime Minister) in 1829 as a university college in the tradition of the Church of England. It now welcomes staff and students of all faiths and beliefs.

The Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London is one of the oldest law schools in England and recognised globally as one of the best law schools in the world.

The School was established in 1831 and has played an integral role in the life of King’s since the university was formed almost 200 years ago.

About the seminar:

International economic law is the object of rising challenges and criticisms as regard substantial and procedural aspects.  Concerning investment arbitration, the backlash against the current ad hoc system has led to a debate on its reform, and especially which institutional design should be adopted to address those criticisms.

Concerning WTO law, it is now confronted with rising challenges with Trump’s administration policies –those measures undermining the WTO order.

In light of their effects, the available options to restore faith in the international economic law order are equally discussed.

The papers to be discussed are as follows:

  • On the reform of trade law: Rachel Brewster, The Trump Administration and the Future of the WTO. Yale Journal of International Law 2019 (44).
  • On the reform of investment law: Puig, Sergio and Shaffer, Gregory C., Imperfect Alternatives: Institutional Choice and the Reform of Investment Law (August 31, 2018). 112 American Journal of International Law 361 (2018); Arizona Legal Studies Discussion Paper No. 18-22; UC Irvine School of Law Research Paper No. 2018-50.
