In the spotlight:
Director of International Trade Programs Steve Powell has been elected to the governing Council of the ABA’s 15,000-member Section of International Law & Practice. He began his service during the Section’s fall meeting last week in Monterrey, Mexico. Powell has also served on the World Trade Organization dispute settlement panel, which released in September a decision that Argentina had violated the WTO Anti-Dumping Agreement on imports of Italian ceramic tiles. The decision, which may be subject to further review, addresses several new areas of interpretation of the agreement.
