Chesterfield Smith Professor Michael W. Gordon has been invited to present a series of lectures in Guatemala as a result of that country’s signing of the Central American Free Trade Agreement. The lectures will be presented at the law faculty of the Universidad Francisco Marroquin in June. Gordon also sat on a NAFTA dispute panel that rendered a decision on a U.S.-Canadian trade dispute in March. The panel, in a 91-page decision, found the International Trade Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce was in error in its determination that Canada was subsidizing wheat by certain financial guarantees, but upheld the ITA’s determination that Canada was subsidizing the provision of railway cars used to carry the wheat. The decision was covered by the Reuters News Service and a number of Canadian newspapers.
