WITA Webinar: WTO JurisPrudence – Were the National Security Cases Prudent Even if They Were Permitted?

Tim Keeler, Mayer Brown partner and Global Co-Lead of the firm’s International Trade product group, will be a featured speaker on WITA’s March 7 webinar.

The World Trade Organization recently ruled that U.S. tariffs imposed by then President Donald Trump on steel and aluminum imports were inconsistent with WTO rules. Trump imposed the tariffs using Section 232 of a 1962 act that allows the president to restrict imports if they are threatening national security.

Please join WITA as we discuss the WTO ruling, and whether bringing the cases was a prudent use of WTO jurisprudence even if they were permitted under the WTO’s Dispute Settlement Understanding.
