We live in a world in which information and ideas flow across international boundaries with ease. Legal jurists and scholars increasingly draw from the experience of international tribunals and foreign legal regimes to inform their interpretations of U.S. law. The U.S. trade laws are both a critical basis for many of our international trade agreements and a creature of the changes in those agreements, brought about through international negotiation. Judge Barnett will explore the relationship between the international trade agreements as interpreted through dispute settlement and the interpretation of domestic trade laws and the extent to which either one does or should inform the other. This important relationship has been shaped, over time, by all three branches of the U.S. Government, and may provide a model for a more detailed relationship between international norms and U.S. law in other practice areas.
