*Call for Papers*
The Asper Review of International Business and Trade Law’s
3rd Annual INTLaw Conference
April 25th and 26th, 2017
INN at the Forks, Winnipeg MB
The Asper Review of International Business and Trade Law extends an invite to all business or law graduate students, academics, and practitioners to its International Business and Trade Law (INTLaw) Conference on April 25th and April 26th, 2017 at the Inn at the Forks hotel in downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. We aim to have lively discussions on innovative topics in international economics, business, and trade law (including e-commerce).
A major focus is to provide a forum for graduate students, early-career academics, experienced scholars, and practitioners to present their work. If approved, papers may be published in the Asper Review of International Business and Trade Law, a peer-reviewed annual publication. The Asper Review is long established and well-regarded: it is ranked among the top ten Canadian law journals, top five specialized Canadian law journals, and top three specialized law journals, internationally.

no later than January 30th, 2017. All approved presenters will receive speaking time, meals, and the option to apply for travel subsidy for out-of-town commuters. Hotel reservation costs are also included! Please note that the use of this subsidy is being offered on the condition that the Asper Review has a right of first refusal for any publication arising out of conference presentations. Student presenters are expected to obtain support for their transportation costs from the institution they are attending; however, if this is not feasible, the conference committee will consider providing a transportation subsidy (on application of up to $500).
We invite all interested in attending to do so at no registration fee! Please contact us at email@example.com to reserve your seat. If you could also please share this invitation with both your graduate students and colleagues, it would be greatly appreciated.
WELCOME TO THE ASPER CHAIR OF INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS AND TRADE LAW
In 1999, the Faculty of Law at the University of Manitoba established the Asper Chair of International Business and Trade Law. The Asper Chair sponsors a variety of research including academic conferences in international business and trade law. An internship program allows up to four students a year to work with the Asper Chair and creates opportunities for students to advance their education, while gaining skills necessary to pursue careers in law or business with an international focus. Additionally, students involved in the Asper program have the opportunity to participate in international commercial dispute resolution competitions.
