For people teaching WTO/international trade law, and still looking for a book to work with, the latest edition of my case book, International Trade Law, is now out.
The main addition, compared to the second edition (2012), is a third author: Jennifer A. Hillman, formerly a member of the WTO Appellate Body, US International Trade Commission and General Counsel at the Office of the US Trade Representative, and now a Visiting Professor at Georgetown University Law Center.
With Andrew Guzman becoming Dean Guzman at USC Gould School of Law, extra help was needed. Jennifer has been a tremendous help and source of inspiration in producing this third edition, in particular a revamp of the trade remedies chapters with new hands-on practical problems.
We have updated the book with reference especially to new WTO case law. The TBT Chapter, for example, is completely re-done as in the span of just a couple of years a rich TBT jurisprudence has developed thanks to essentially three cases: US — Clove Cigarettes, US — Tuna II and US — COOL. Also the traditional topic of national treatment needed a substantial re-work in the wake of the influential EC — Seals dispute.
Other post-2011 seminal cases included in this edition are: Canada — Feed-in Tariffs, China — Rare Earths and Peru — Agricultural Products. Other important developments incorporated in this third edition are renewed Trade Promotion Authority in the United States (granted in 2015), the conclusion of mega-regionals such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the 2014 WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement.
Once more, we tried our best to make all of these updates without making the book (much) longer. This means that we had to be selective and drop, or not include, certain issues or cases that some teachers may have liked to see included. This third edition also updates data and statistics on trade flows and other economic data (Chapters 1 and 20), dispute settlement (Chapter 5), trade remedy investigations and preferential trade agreements (Chapters 16 and 12), and country classifications (Chapter 22).

An international (non-US) edition is available, in soft cover. For teachers using the book in class, a special rate, depending on the country, is available. You should contact Aspen to that effect, or just send me an email.
I hope the book will be useful to teachers & students alike!
