Providing a dynamic, international learning environment for students to develop legal skills

2018 TradeLab students receiving advice on their project from Prof David Gantz

Why TradeLab?

Since the inception of TradeLab, we have trained over 900 students from countries all over the world. In that time, TradeLab students have produced over 300 unique projects for almost as many beneficiaries.

We have grown from just a one clinic to a network of 15 members and 3 pilot clinics spread worldwide. Some of our alumni have even returned to TradeLab to serve as expert mentors, beneficiaries, or clinic supervisors.

  • Beyond law: In clinics, students also explore economic and public policy, legislative drafting, and interagency coordination
