NAFTA Explained *Class by Webinar*


Date & Time: Tuesday, December 12, 2017 from 1:00 pm to 3:15 pm

CLE Credit: Yes

Event Description
2.0 Credit Hours

 

Since it entered into force on January 1, 1994, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has dramatically increased trade between the United States, Canada, and Mexico.  Notwithstanding this fact, President Trump has asserted that NAFTA is the “worst trade deal ever made” and has threatened that the U.S. may withdraw from the Agreement unless it can be renegotiated in ways that will provide more benefits to U.S. companies and workers.  In light of President Trump's concerns, the three countries have entered into talks to renegotiate, although what specific changes may be made to the NAFTA remain under intense discussion.  During this program, practitioners with considerable experience on NAFTA-related matters will discuss some of the key aspects of NAFTA, including those relating to rules of origin and investor-state dispute settlement procedures (among other things), and possible ways in which they could be changed as a result of the negotiations between the three countries.
