“For me it was probably the most interesting class I followed during my 2 years as a Masters student of the Graduate Institute and I felt grateful that Prof. Pauwelyn had chosen me to participate at the clinic. I really enjoyed the practical approach of the clinic i.e. the fact that we needed to get in the shoes of a law practitioner in order to provide a realistic solution to a project. Since we had the opportunity to work with the Permanent Mission of a WTO member, I found also very interesting the interactions we had with the diplomats involved in the project and their multifaceted insights (politics, global economic situation etc.) to the implementation/interpretation of the law. Finally, it was a great exercise of developing legal drafting skills, an exercise frequently not available to the students of many universities in continental Europe.”
