The project, started in 2001 with financial support from the American Law Institute, brings together lawyers and economists who jointly assess the previous years WTO Case Law at an annual conference hosted by the Global Governance Programme, EUI.

Final versions of case law papers are published in an annual special issue of The World Trade Review.
The publisher, Cambridge University Press, has made these articles available free of change.
They can be downloaded at: https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/world-trade-review/information/reporters-studies-of-wto-case-law-from-world-trade-review.

In addition, the project includes a dataset on WTO disputes that is periodically updated. The last version of the dataset with updated information spanning 1995 to 2020 and an associated user guide can be downloaded below from ‘WTO Dispute Settlement Dataset’.

The project webpage with a list of related case law citations can be found here.

Related datasets on WTO disputes compiled by Chad Bown that no longer are being updated but continue to be useful for research can be found below under ‘Trade Flows and Trade Disputes Dataset’ and ‘Temporary Trade Barriers Database’.
