"I think this web site is a worthwhile addition to any
collection of research tools on international trade law ... .
... the subscription materials are well worth the money
for any library, organization, or law firm that needs to
delve deeply into the world of WTO panels and AB reports.
The commentaries are a convenient way to get
to the heart of the legal issues since most of the
panels and reports are quite lengthy and complex.
Having access to these materials has solved many
a research problem for my students and faculty."
