Implementing our Values | Regulation of Trade in the Name of Human Rights

Human rights concerns increasingly inform decisions under U.S. trade law. The U.S. Government now considers human rights in making export controls decisions, new sanctions designations, negotiation and enforcement of free trade agreements, and, especially, U.S. policy towards China. This CLE will provide an overview of recent developments on human rights and U.S. trade law, with analysis of key legal issues for corporate counsel, non-governmental organizations, and the interested public. Topics will include how human rights have resulted in new export controls, how human rights impact export control licensing decisions, sanctions designations for human rights reasons, labor provisions in the U.S.-Canada-Mexico Agreement (USMCA), and more.

This CLE is approved for credit through July 7, 2025.
