Law Quadrangle (formerly Law Quad Notes)


The following essay, which discusses the trade and environment jurisprudence of the World Trade Organization and its implication for the Japan-U.S. whaling dispute, is excerpted from "Multilateralism, Unilateralism, and Bilateralism in U.S.-Japan Trade Relations: A WTO Law Perspective," a paper the author delivered at the conference on Japan-U.S. trade relations, held at Keijo University, Tokyo, last spring. A complete copy of the paper, which discusses two additional WTO cases, one involving the European Union challenge to Section 301 o the U.S. trade legislation, and the other involving the Canada-U.S. Auto Pact, is available from the author or from Law Quadrangle Notes.
