International Trade Law
In today’s global market, success in the international trade arena is central to the economic health of the nation and law schools have a central role to play in ensuring that success.
The University of Florida Levin College of Law’s International Trade Law Program builds on the law school’s strong slate of international activities and aims to be the national model for academic interaction with the business community, federal and state agencies, and The Florida Bar in the provision of legal services that can be translated into successful international business strategies.
The Program, led by long-time federal trade negotiator and chief counsel Steve Powell, was formed in January 2000 as part of the state’s premier legal research institute, the Center for Governmental Responsibility. The program pursues its goal by sponsoring seminars for business executives and their attorneys, developing academic courses on international trade topics, conducting research on trade issues important to Florida businesses, and providing technical assistance to developing countries to implement their World Trade Organization obligations.
