Please join us for a special LawCats Live hosted by the Daniel F. Cracchiolo Law Library and Alumni and Development for a Book Talk featuring David Gantz, Samuel M. Fegtly Professor Emeritus and Director Emeritus, International Economic Law and Policy Program, in conversation with Andrew Shepherd ('17), Associate Scholar and Deputy Director for Global Faculty.

The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), a modified and modernized version of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), will continue to govern most economic relationships in North America, including the more than $1.3 trillion in annual regional trade in goods and services, for the foreseeable future. This book provides a detailed analysis and critique of the provisions of the USMCA and the USMCA’s relation to NAFTA. It is designed to assist lawyers and non-lawyers alike, including law, economics and public policy scholars, business professionals and governmental officials who require an understanding of one of the world’s most economically and politically significant regional trade agreements.
