International Trade Law


Comprised of 10 self-contained chapters, International Trade Law will provide readers with an understanding of the international legal framework in which trade between nations takes place. The authors detail the aims and historical development of intergovernmental and private systems of cross-border trading rules and institutions.

The first half of the book focuses on the framework provided to the international trading system by the World Trade Organization (WTO), including the public international law dimension of trade, namely the exchange of goods, services and intellectual property rights, and competition remedies and foreign investment measures.

The second half of the book expands on the legal ramifications of private actions in the international trading system and covers the contractual aspects of sales, transportation, payments and disputes settlement. The final chapter critically evaluates which aspects of the international trade should be regulated by the principles of justice.

Every chapter includes an appendix with workshop activities, which are crucial to bridging the gap between theory and practice in the understanding of international trade law.
