Legal and Economic Principles of World Trade Law

This work is a series of Reporter’s Studies on a wide range of World Trade Law and the decisions by the World Trade Organization. Published by Cambridge University Press, each Study represents the joint product of a lawyer and an economist. And each examines and critiques a particular WTO decision from both legal and economic perspectives. The Studies represent the work of the individual Reporters rather than that of the Institute.

Three distinguished professors involved in the ALI project have prepared a volume on the history of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. The Genesis of the GATT supplies important background information for understanding where trade policy and trade law are today.

These publications are available in eBook format from Cambridge University Press.

    The WTO Case Law of 2010
    159 pages, 2012, #1WTO10

    This book brings together the 2010 output of the American Law Institute (ALI) project on World Trade Organization law. Each chapter focuses on a different dispute from the adjudicating bodies of the WTO. Each case is jointly evaluated by well known experts in trade law and international economics. ALI reporters critically review the jurisprudence of WTO adjudicating bodies and evaluate whether the ruling 'makes sense ' from an economic as well as a legal point of view and, if not, whether the problem lies in the interpretation of the law or the law itself. The studies do not always cover all issues discussed in a case, but they seek to discuss both the procedural and the substantive issues that form, in the reporters ' views, the 'core ' of the dispute. This paperback will be an invaluable resource for students, lecturers and practitioners of international trade law.The WTO Case Law of 2010 Legal and Economic Analysis
