International Economic Law

International law governs a diverse mixture of economic and commercial matters, such as trade, monetary policy, development, intellectual property rights, and investment. This area of international law reaches broadly enough to encompass topics ranging from international transactions by private parties to agreements between states to regulate their trade activities. The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) that governs international trade, is the most important treaty in this area; it is administered by the World Trade Organization. Others include the treaty on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property (TRIPS) and the General Agreements on Trade in Services (GATS).
