International Trade and National Security Policy: 2019 Update


Created on October 15, 2019





Although often discussed as separate considerations, international trade matters and national security policy naturally intersect, sometimes in unexpected ways for trade law practitioners. This has been particularly true during the Trump Administration. This program, taught by Laura Fraedrich and Lindsey Nelson of Jones Day, will explore the various considerations that tie together international trade and national security policy, with a focus on economic sanctions and recent developments under the current administration. 

The course will also review recent changes to the review of foreign direct investment by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) and the Defense Security Service. Finally, the program will cover recent developments in tariffs imposed by the Trump Administration, particularly those relating to imports from China.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the interplay between international trade and national security
  2. Identify current trends and policies, and recent developments in these areas
  3. Analyze best practices for dealing with recent tariffs
