Creating Commerical Connections
(Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica and Mexico)
Presented by: Law Library of Congress, the Friends of the Law Library of Congress, Law Librarians' Society of Washington D.C. (LLSDC), American Society of International Law (ASIL), and the AALL Foreign, Comparative and International Law Special Interest Section (FCIL SIS)
Mark your calendars! On Wednesday, March 13, 2002, the above-mentioned groups will sponsor a one-day workshop focusing on trade in Latin America (with associated topics such as taxation, labor, and investment). With the Free Trade of the Americas Agreement (FTAA) gaining momentum, it is important for librarians in the U.S. to be well equipped to find relevant information and laws related to many of the major jurisdictions in Latin America: Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica and Mexico. This workshop will highlight the major issues surrounding this topic and focus on the best resources for obtaining legal information. Relevant sources will include print and electronic in both English and the vernacular.
If you are traveling to Washington, DC to attend the ASIL Annual Meeting (see http://www.asil.org), consider arriving one day early to attend this valuable workshop.
The price of the workshop is $50.00 and includes a continental breakfast, lunch, and program materials. A great value!
The workshop will be held at the U.S. Law Library of Congress, National Digital Library Learning Center. More information (directions, schedule, speaker information, etc.) is available at http://www.ll.georgetown.edu/intl/presentations/latamworkshop.html. The registration form is also available from this page. The deadline for registration is March 1, 2002.
