The ACWL is pleased to announce the launch of its 21st annual training course and looks forward to welcoming new and former participants. This year’s course is Part II of the ACWL’s three-year training programme on WTO law and jurisprudence and will focus on Intellectual Property, Services, Trade Remedies and Other Disciplines. There is no requirement to have completed Part I of the programme to attend this year’s Part II.
The course will start on Thursday, 13 October 2022 and end on 8 June 2023. The course is designed for Geneva-based government officials from ACWL developing country Members and from least-developed countries (LDCs), particularly those delegates whose functions involve the legal aspects of trade policy. We invite interested officials from ACWL developing country Members and LDCs to register for the course before 11 October 2022 using the registration link which has been sent by email to the secretariat of your mission.
The sessions will be held on Thursdays from 13:30 to 14:45 at the ACWL’s Annex, 35-37 Avenue Giuseppe-Motta, 1st floor, Geneva, Switzerland. A light lunch will be provided starting at 12:45 each Thursday.
The course will be taught by the Executive Director and lawyers of the ACWL. The course will include a moot court exercise, in which participants will take part in a simulated WTO dispute settlement proceeding involving some of the issues covered in the course. A Certificate of Attendance will be issued to participants that attend the course consistently. In addition, participants may take an optional written (multiple choice) examination. An additional Certificate of Achievement will be provided to participants that are successful in the examination.
Please contact the secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
