ACWL invites applications for the Secondment Programme for Trade Lawyers 2011-2012
The ACWL invites applications to the 2011-2012 cycle of the Secondment Programme for Trade Lawyers. The Secondment Programme has been made possible by funding provided by the governments of Canada, Denmark, Ireland, Norway and Sweden. To date, the Programme has trained participants from Bhutan, Chinese Taipei, Colombia, Egypt, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Pakistan, Paraguay, Philippines, Thailand, Turkey and Uganda.
The Programme is intended to provide government officials entrusted with functions relating to the legal aspects of trade policy the opportunity to broaden their professional experience in the field of WTO law by temporarily joining the staff of the ACWL. Up to three successful applicants will join the staff of the ACWL as paid trainees from mid-September 2011 to mid-June 2012. The participants will be provided with both theoretical training and practical experience in WTO law and an opportunity to participate actively in WTO dispute settlement proceedings. Upon completion of the Programme, the participants are expected to resume their employment with their government.
