Sydney Business School would like to invite you to join Professor Colin Picker, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Business and Law in this special presentation discussing the origins, developments and current operations of the international trade regime.

Professor Picker will look take a specific look at the dispute resolution aspects of the multilateral and bilateral agreements, as well as those available as domestic-based remedies, while further exploring the ongoing trade conflicts between Australia and China, and Brexit.

And finally Professor Picker will examine how the popular media gives an impression of lawlessness in the international trade environment, but in reality it is well regulated and largely effective legal regime.

We would love to see you in person where you will be able to chat and network with Professor Picker after the presentation and enjoy some light snacks following.

You can register to attend this event on campus, or if you are unable to attend in person you can register to watch the Webinar live online.
