Lunch shall be provided.

||The Crowe Room, The Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy
||Kindly RSVP to Jeremy Leong at firstname.lastname@example.org (places are limited)
||Prof. Lim will speak on international trade law and distributive justice in the development context. In what he terms as the "conventional morality" of trade, Prof. Lim will address existing theories on trade law and developing countries and revisit the legacy of the late Robert E. Hudec. In so doing, build a new paradigm in understanding both the receptiveness and the bias today against arguments about right and wrong in trade law and policy.
