Posted by Amanda Kelly on Monday, December 5, 2011 at 2:32 PM PST

Seattle University School of Law and the Law and Development Institute invite you to attend the 2011 Law and Development Institute Conference, titled "Law and Development at the Microlevel: From Microtrade to Current Issues in Law and Development".

Seventeen leading speakers from seven countries, including U.S.A., Canada, Japan, Australia, Thailand, United Kingdom, and India, are scheduled to present key issues on international trade, investment and finance, and least‐developed countries from the perspective of law and development. The speakers’ biographical information and presentation summaries as well as the conference schedule are available. The speakers present the latest ideas and proposals on how the new form of international trade, such as microtrade, may assist poorest countries and peoples around the world to escape from worst poverty, how development finance and investment may contribute to their economic improvement, and how the international community may assist least-developed countries to resolve some of the most serious issues causing their economic and social hardships. The conference attendants may have opportunities for questions and discussions after panel presentations.

For additional information about the conference, please contact Junsen A. Ohno, International Programs Administrator, at ohnoj@seattleu.edu or 206.398.4283.
