International Trade: Navigating a Changing Landscape
with Jill O'Donnell and Matthew Schaefer

Thursday, October 25, 2018, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., Room 202, College of Business Howard L. Hawks Hall, Lincoln, Nebraska

Long-term trends and new developments are impacting the international trading system. 2018 to date has seen the imposition of U.S. unilateral tariffs on more than $100 billion of imports (with tariffs on $200 billion more to take effect soon) and resulting retaliation by several major trading partners; renegotiation of existing trade agreements such as NAFTA and KORUS; the conclusion of major trade agreement negotiations that do not include the U.S., leaving U.S. businesses at potential competitive disadvantage; and twice the number of new trade-restrictive measures applied by countries compared to last year, according to the WTO.

Jill O’Donnell, Director of the Yeutter Institute, and Matthew Schaefer, Veronica A. Haggart and Charles R. Work Professor of International Trade Law, will lead the presentation and discuss the legal, policy, business and diplomatic angles of these developments. The presentation will include a primer on U.S. trade remedy laws as well as their historical and current use, legal processes created for obtaining exemptions to increased import duties recently imposed by the United States, an update on WTO dispute settlement cases involving the United States, and an update on NAFTA renegotiations and other trade negotiations of the United States. This presentation is applicable to all types of organizations interested in international trade as well as legal professionals. The program is approved for 1 hour of CLE credit (Activity number: 164291).

1-hour CLE credit is available for NE (Activity number: 164291)

Program Cost Per Lunch: $49

Includes lunch and parking validation (14th and Avery Garage)
