Continuing Legal Education and Programming

As a service to its alumni and friends, the College of Law is happy to provide CLE credits during the 2017-2018 academic year. These events provide a wonderful opportunity to use the facility and reconnect. Cost to receive CLE credit is $20 for each attendee - exact change is required. Because programming develops throughout the course of the school year, registration is exclusively online. We encourage interested individuals to check this website routinely as programs are added continuously throughout the school year.

International Trade: Navigating a Changing Landscape

Speaker(s): Matt Schaefer
Jill O’Donnell

Nebraska College of Business
730 N. 14th St.; Room 202
Lincoln, NE

Long-term trends and new developments are impacting the international trading system. 2018 to date has seen the imposition of U.S. unilateral tariffs on more than $100 billion of imports and resulting retaliation by several major trading partners; renegotiation of existing trade agreements such as NAFTA and KORUS; the conclusion of major trade agreement negotiations that do not include the U.S. leaving U.S. businesses at potential competitive disadvantage; and twice the number of new trade-restrictive measures applied by countries compared to last year, according to the WTO.  Presentation looks at the legal, policy, business and diplomatic angles of these developments.  It will include a primer on U.S. trade remedy laws as well as their historical and current use, legal processes created for obtaining exemptions to increased import duties recently imposed by the United States, an update on WTO dispute settlement cases involving the United States, and an update on NAFTA renegotiations and other trade negotiations of the United States.

Wednesday, 2018, November 14 - 12:10pm to 1:10pm
The Current Debate on Brazilian Tax Reform and the Brazil Constitution: A Comparison with International and U.S. Approaches
Approved for 1.0 credit hours

Speaker(s): Dr. Arthur Neto

Nebraska College of Law

This talk by Dr. Arthur Maria Ferreira Neto will discuss the current debate on tax reform in Brazil in light of related debates about amending the Brazil Constitution, which was adopted in 1988.  These debates will become even more important in the aftermath of the Brazil presidential election in October 2018.  Brazilian leaders and policymakers are considering other tax reform approaches, including guidelines on value added taxes (“VAT”) recently promulgated by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (“OECD”) as well as the reforms made in U.S. tax law as part of the 2017 Tax Cut and Jobs Act.  Dr. Neto’s talk will focus on the Brazilian experience while comparing it with approaches advocated by the OECD as well as those reflected in U.S. tax law reforms and tax policy debates.  He will also touch on some differences and similarities between the Brazil Constitution and the U.S. Constitution.
