IELPO Joins TradeLab Law Clinics

As part of its curriculum diversification, IELPO has recently been accepted to hold one of the law clinics that form part of the TradeLab, an independent Geneva-based NGO bringing together students, academics and legal practitioners.

TradeLab aims at empower 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. TradeLab clinics are from The Graduate Institute (Geneva, Switzerland), Georgetown University (Washington D.C., United States), the University of Barcelona (Barcelona, Spain), Jindal Global Law School (New Delhi, India), University of Ottawa (Ottawa, Canada), Qatar University (Doha, Qatar) and Trade Policy Training Centre in Africa (Arusha, Tanzania).

The first project was successfully developed by three students from the 2015-2016 edition, Sébastien Lauzier (from Canada), Juan Sebastián Vallejo and Camilo Vicaría (both of them from Colombia) under the supervision of Prof. Xavier Fernández Pons, Co-Director of the IELPO LL.M. Even if the full report is confidential, a public summary is available at https://tradelab.legal.io/guide/57f9b088e4a9945dc00002b2/Project-Summary-The-WTO-Marrakesh-Agreement

We therefore welcome any stakeholder interested in submitting a project to the TradeLab platform to contact us through https://tradelab.legal.io/intake/new
