Wayne law to host discussion on NAFTA negotiations

DETROIT – International trade law experts will gather at Wayne Law Monday, Jan. 29 to discuss the Trump administration’s wide-ranging proposals to revise NAFTA, many of which have been rejected by Canada and Mexico.

The event, “The Future of NAFTA: Renegotiation, Termination or more of the same?” is free and open to the public. It will be from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. in the Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium at the law school, 471 W. Palmer St. Parking will be available for $7.75 (credit or debit card only) in Parking Structure No. 1 across West Palmer Street from the law school. Lunch will be provided.

The Trump administration has made renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement one of its foreign policy priorities, with the next round of discussions taking place Jan. 23-28. This panel will discuss the proposals, their likelihood of success and what might happen if the United States withdraws from NAFTA.
