The ACWL is pleased to announce the launch of its 18th annual training course and looks forward to welcoming former and new participants. This year’s course is part two of the ACWL’s three-year training programme on WTO law and jurisprudence and will focus on Services, Intellectual Property, Trade Remedies and Other Disciplines. The provisional programme for the course is attached.
The course will start on Thursday, 3 October 2019 and end on 30 April 2020. The course is designed for Geneva-based government officials from ACWL developing country Members and from least-developed countries (LDCs), particularly those delegates whose functions involve the legal aspects of trade policy. The sessions will be held on Thursdays from 13:30 to 14:45 at the ACWL’s Annex, Geneva, Switzerland (35-37 Avenue Giuseppe-Motta, 1st floor). A light lunch will be provided starting at 12:45 each Thursday.
The course will be taught by the Executive Director and lawyers of the ACWL. A Certificate of Attendance will be issued to participants that attend the course consistently. As in previous years, the course will include a moot court exercise, in which course participants will take part in a simulated WTO dispute settlement proceeding involving some of the issues covered in the course. In addition, participants that have completed the course may take an optional written (multiple choice) examination in May. A Certificate of Achievement will be provided to participants that are successful in the examination.
