The WTO Case Law of 2001

The American Law Institute Reporters' Studies

The WTO Case Law of 2001

The American Law Institute project on WTO Law undertakes yearly analysis of the case law from the adjudicating bodies of the WTO. Reporters' Studies for 2001 cover a wide range of WTO law cases, whose coverage ranges from classic trade in goods issues to intellectual property protection. Each case is evaluated jointly by an economist and a lawyer. Studies do not cover all issues discussed in a case, but seek to isolate the procedural and substantive elements that form the "core" of the dispute.
