Nearly 39 million American jobs depend on trade and U.S. international trade is critical to the success of many sectors of the our economy. Though most lawyers will not routinely encounter customs law issues, those who may should know 1) the relevant agencies and processes; 2) basic concepts (e.g., origin, valuation, tariff classification, reasonable care, etc.); 3) sanctions (e.g., civil penalties, seizures, exclusions, criminal penalties, etc.); and 4) customs law in the news (i.e., topics that may come up at a party). This course features streaming video and downloadable audio presentations from a live CLE seminar by the Houston Bar Association (HBA) on September 21, 2018.
