Prof Powell runs the University of Florida College of Law's Int’l Trade Law Program, teaches trade law courses, and serves on trade dispute panels. Powell was for 17 years principal legal advisor on trade remedy laws (subsidies and dumping) as Chief Counsel for the US Import Administration and for 10 years served as Asst GC in NOAA, the US oceans agency. He began his legal career as a U.S. Air Force JAG Capt. Powell has 30 years of experience in drafting, implementing, and teaching trade and environmental laws and in litigating these laws and their treaty antecedents before federal courts and dispute panels under NAFTA and WTO. Steve negotiated treaties to deter govt. subsidies and unfair private pricing practices, including the NAFTA. He served as lead U.S. negotiator in Free Trade Area of the Americas talks on trade remedies. Powell has centered his academic scholarship on trade’s linkages with worker rights and other human rights laws, culminating in his NYU Press book on JUST TRADE, written with int’l law expert Berta Hernandez-Truyol, which reflects their pooled wisdom on concrete measures to draw on trade's vast power to enhance human well-being along with world economic welfare. to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
