ELSA Wrocław Law School on International Trade will tackle the wide scope of issues concerning EU-China relations. Lectures and workshops will be held by scholars, practising lawyers, experts in law, economics and international relations.
Our academic programme will focus on EU- China bilateral trade and investment treaties, trade defense measures and EU regulations implementing defense policy. In 2016 the Accession Protocol of People’s Republic of China has expired, however EU still has not recognised China as market economy, that led to China’s complaint to WTO. Above case would be analysed and possible solutions would be discussed during 2 lectures.
On another day debate would be held, that will deliberate the future of EU-China relations in reference to 2020 Strategic Agenda for Cooperation. One-day preparation with experts precedes the moot court. Such a competition gives an outstanding opportunity to put the knowledge into practice, cooperate and compete in teams, as well as to develop soft skills.
