The International Trade and Customs Law Committee is a forum for international practitioners, corporate counsel, academics and government officials to convene, exchange ideas and promote discussion of issues across the spectrum of international trade and customs law.
The International Trade and Customs Law Committee also works closely with bar associations and other organisations across the world to organise events and to ensure that the committee and its members are on the leading edge of international trade and customs issues.
The International Trade and Customs Law Committee are publishing a series of podcasts - Customs law conversations: practitioners talk to practitioners - in which customs practitioners discuss their recent cases or investigations, the type of issues they have faced and how they are being solved in investigations or in court, to showcase what it means to be a customs lawyer.
In episode one, Yves Melin, Publications Officer for the Committee and a partner at Reed Smith, discusses the landmark Jiangsu Seraphim Solar System v Commission case with Nico Ooyevaar, Vice-Chair of the Committee and a partner at McMan & Co. Listen now on the IBA website.
