Comprehensive Trade Agreements and Modernized NAFTA (1 Day)

Location: The Chicago Bar Association, 321 South Plymouth Court, Chicago, IL
Presented by: CBA and Montreal Bar Association

In forcing the NAFTA parties to renegotiate the Agreement, the Trump administration has also created the opportunity to modernize the 23-year-old NAFTA, to re-evaluate its legacy and to discuss an alternative model. Officials from the U.S., Canada and Mexico have continued their negotiations long enough to take us beyond the first December 2017 target and the later March 2018 target to wrap up their talks. Although come recent optimism in the political sphere has indicated the possibility of an agreement in principle by May 2018, internal sources involved in the negotiations predict that negotiations on critical remaining issues will go on until 2019.

What issues can we expect will be addressed in the modernized NAFTA and what are the legal implications for our clients?
