Part one: Introduction to the World Trade Organization

World Trade Organization webinar series

This is the first webinar in our series on the World Trade Organization (WTO) and Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), which aims to introduce participants to the WTO and the key legal mechanisms that govern international trade. In light of the UK's exit from the European Union, many individuals would like to gain a greater understanding of both international trade law in general, as well as the UK's future position and involvement in the international trade landscape. In this introductory webinar we cover:

  • Membership of the WTO
  • Origins of the WTO
  • The WTO's mandate; and
  • Decision making
