The International Trade Subcommittee was formed in August 2011 as an evolution of the Working Group on International Issues, part of the Cyberspace Committee of the Section of Business Law.
The Subcommittee deals with any aspects of the cross-border nature of the Internet and e-commerce that strike the interest of its members. This work can involve publications, internal reports, CLE programs and forums, and informed discussions. We work with other parts of the Cyberspace Law Committee and other parts of the Section as appropriate. Reports of the meetings of the Working Group and of recent meetings of the predecessor groups are linked to on this page.
The Subcommittee has a specialty, as it were, of examining recent developments and future activity in private international law matters that are likely to affect business lawyers. The results of the examination may be law reform suggestions, drafting solutions, program proposals, or policy submissions for national delegations. One of the co-chairs has responsibility for a selection of international e-commerce files at the State Department and is often looking for input in formulating official positions.
