Philip J. Shapiro Endowed International Visiting Scholar Lecture Comments

The Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University invites you to attend the Philip J. Shapiro Endowed International Visiting Scholar Lecture, “It Sure Looks Different From the Inside: Deciding International Trade Disputes at the WTO,” to be delivered by Thomas R. Graham, a member of the World Trade Organization Appellate Body, on Wednesday, February 6 from 12 p.m. - 1 p.m.

Tom Graham is a member of the Appellate Body of the World Trade Organization in Geneva. The Appellate Body is, in effect, the highest appeals court for deciding international trade disputes between governments that arise under WTO agreements. Graham is the former head of the international trade practice at King & Spalding and the founder of the international trade practice at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom. He also has served as deputy general counsel in the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and as a legal officer of the United Nations in Geneva, and he was the first chairman of the American Society of International Law’s Committee on International Economic Law.

Graham has been a visiting professor at the University of North Carolina School of Law and an adjunct professor at the Georgetown Law Center. He has edited books on international trade policy and on international trade and environment, and he has written many articles and monographs on international trade law and policy as a guest scholar at the Brookings Institution and as a senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

He is a graduate of Indiana University and of Harvard Law School.

The Philip J. Shapiro Endowed International Visiting Scholars Program brings legal scholars, government officials and prominent members of the international legal and business communities to the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University annually. The visitors interact with faculty and students to discuss timely issues in the fields of international and comparative law. A public lecture for the Hofstra Law community is part of the international visitor’s stay.
