Georgetown Law’s IIEL is proud to participate in TradeLab–an independent, Geneva-based NGO bringing together students, academics, and legal practitioners with the aim of empowering countries and smaller stakeholders to reap the full development benefits of global trade and investment rules. Through pro bono legal clinics and practica, TradeLab connects students and experienced legal professionals to public officials, especially in developing countries, small and medium-sized enterprises and civil society to build lasting legal capacity. Through ‘learning by doing’, we want to train and promote the next generation of trade and investment lawyers. By providing information and support on negotiations, compliance, and litigation, TradeLab strives to make WTO, preferential trade and bilateral investment treaties work for everyone.
Projects are being finalized now–if you’d like to participate, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
