The Asper Review of International Business and Trade Law extends an invitation to all business or law graduate students, academics, and practitioners to its International Business and Trade Law (INTLaw) Conference on April 23rd and April 24th, 2018 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). This year, the two themes of the conference will be the Sharing Economy and Secession Movements. 

A major focus of the conference 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 (by the editors) and refereed annual publication. The Asper Review is long established and well-regarded: among Canadian Law Journals it is ranked eighth overall, third among specialized journals, and first in the area of international trade law. It is ranked seventh in the world in peer-reviewed or refereed international trade law journals (Washington and Lee University annual survey).

We invite all interested in attending to do so at no registration fee! Please contact us at to reserve your seat.
