LITIGATING BEFORE THE U.S. INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION

SINCE 1984, THE INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION TRIAL LAWYERS ASSOCIATION HAS BEEN THE PRIMARY ORGANIZATION INFORMING ATTORNEYS AROUND THE WORLD ABOUT SECTION 337 PRACTICE.

The ITCTLA is dedicated to improving the administration of Section 337 and informing attorneys, international trade officials, and legislators about practice before the ITC. A non-profit, non-partisan educational organization founded in 1984, the Association:

  • Publishes the 337 Reporter, the only newsletter devoted to articles, case highlights, and news of Section 337 practice
  • Develops educational programs featuring prominent international trade officials and commentators
  • Maintains committees to present the views of the Section 337 bar to the Commission and Congress and deliver input on administrative and legislative matters
  • Provides a forum for new and experienced attorneys to meet and discuss Section 337 litigation
ITCTLA members confer regularly to review developments affecting Section 337 practice, and annually elect officers to leadership positions. The Association maintains active standing committees, reflecting the diverse professional interests of its members. The Association continues to be active in administrative and legislative efforts to improve the administration of Section 337 and to ensure it serves as an effective remedy to prevent the importation of infringing goods at the border.
