Do you have attorneys looking to identify information sources for the client selling goods in Asia and Latin America?
Have you been asked to teach a seminar session on international trade?
Are you drifting amidst the sea of acronyms: OECD, ALADI, ASEAN, EFTA?
If requests like these are filling up your in box, professional help is on the way.
"Shopping in the Global Marketplace: Information Sources for International Trade" is a one-day workshop on Friday, July 9, 2004. The venue for the workshop is the modern, convenient, and lovely Suffolk University Law School. The expert panel of speakers will address the importance of international trade, how to find trade resources, the World Trade Organization, antitrust and competition law, and the ins and outs of regional trading systems - EU, OAS, and APEC, to name a few.
The workshop is sponsored by the FCIL-SIS and features a fine slate of speakers, including Professor Sara Dillon, author of International Trade and Economic Law and the European Union (Hart 2002), Professor Uche Ewelukwa, a noted expert on international competition law and a 2003 Carnegie Council Fellow, and many law librarians with expertise in international trade and related issues. This event is appropriate for librarians new to foreign and international law; it is also appropriate for seasoned librarians who want to update or expand their knowledge of this vital area.
Space is still available for the workshop. The registration fee ($135.00) includes the full-day program, handout materials, continental breakfast, lunch, and refreshments. Additional information is available on page 29 of the preliminary program.
Even if you are unable to attend the entire AALL conference, consider spending one day to sharpen your trade law research skills!
