Our 10th Anniversary Celebration, held on September 13th at the WTO Public Forum was well attended by TradeLab supervisors, students, beneficiaries, and supporters. The TradeLab organization quintessentially embodies this year’s Public Forum theme—“It is time for action.” There is no better action for promoting fair and equitable international trade than the hands-on work that our students are doing, globally, each semester.
Joost Pauwelyn, co-founder and former president, spoke about TradeLab’s founding years.
Katrin Kuhlmann, TradeLab’s newly elected co-President, spoke about TradeLab’s success stories and a vision for the future.
Clotilde du Parc, a sponsor from VBB, spoke about the importance of global support and sponsorship for TradeLab.
And Jennifer Hillman, a supervisor at Georgetown University, spoke about TradeLab’s mission and students.
We also heard from a number of TradeLab supervisors in attendance, who spoke briefly about their students and clinics. It was exciting to see supervisors and students gather in person, many meeting for the first time since the pandemic.
