The WTO Scholars' Forum is a
new initiative designed to bring together experts from both academia
and legal practice to discuss current aspects of the law and
practice of the World Trade Organization (WTO). Currently there are
many academics and practitioners who have an interest in WTO law and
several events organised both in London and outside. However, there
is little year-long sustained activity which capitalizes on all the
interest and knowledge. The WTO Scholars' Forum hopes to draw
together all this expertise by holding a series of activities. The
Forum is also open to PhD students and it encourages them attend the
activities and give papers as part of the seminar series.
