Each year, the Center for International Law hosts a judge of the U.S. Court of International Trade or the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit to lecture on a topic that addresses the role of the federal courts play in shaping and litigating customs and trade law disputes. Named to honor the Hon. Dominick L. DiCarlo, a former Chief Judge of the U.S Court of International Trade, the first formal lecture was held in 2003.

Previous lecture topics include “Designating Non-Market Economies Under U.S. Trade Laws: Can There Be a Free Market Economy Where There Is No Free Marketplace of Ideas?,” “Trade Adjustment Assistance: The Human Face of the Court of International Trade,” and “Litigating Customs and Trade Disputes 30 Years after the Customs Courts Act of 1980 and the Effect of Judicial Review in the Future.”
