Center for International Trade and Agriculture

The Center for International Trade and Agriculture brings together scholars, practitioners, policymakers, and students around the study and practice of international trade and agriculture. The center aims to promote key issues in these areas through research and outreach in Kansas and around the world. To accomplish that mission, the center sponsors interdisciplinary conferences addressing issues of current importance to legal practitioners, scholars, and policymakers in international trade and agriculture, with special emphasis on matters of importance to the state of Kansas. It hosts visiting scholars, practitioners, or policymakers to interact with students, faculty, and alumni through guest lectures and mini-courses. The center also educates and trains law students through relevant course work and summer placements to engage in legal practice, prepare for work in law reform, or engage in agribusiness and international trade in areas related to trade and agriculture.
