Interpretation of Service Schedules: A Perspective from China-Audiovisual Services
Professor Heng Wang
8 March 2011, 6 - 7.15pm
Moot Court Room, UCL Law Faculty
About this event:
Service schedule interpretation is attracting more attention in the WTO disputes and may affect service negotiations and domestic policy. The presentation takes the Appellate Body report of China-Audiovisual Services as an example to analyse the following issues: Is there a common intention in schedules? Should schedules be interpreted in the same way as treaty text? Is the static or evolutionary interpretation preferred?

WTO Scholars' Forum
The Forum was set up in September 2006 by Dr Fiona Smith of University College London (UCL)’s Faculty of Laws. The Forum’s aims are to bring together leading experts on the law of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) for discussions on WTO law and practice. Discussions are both web-based and face-to-face via conferences and smaller seminars. Experts are drawn from legal practice (solicitors and barristers) and leading universities in London and its immediate surrounding area, although there are plans to expand to national coverage. The Forum is co-directed with Dr Isabelle Van Damme at University of Cambridge.
The Centre is part of the Faculty of Law in the University of Cambridge and one of the Faculty's specialist law centres. The Centre is the scholarly home of international law at Cambridge University. International law is a major aspect of the Law Faculty's teaching programme at undergraduate, LLM and research level. The Director, Deputy Director and other Fellows of the Centre teach in the Faculty and Colleges.
