The prestigious, annual Georgetown International Trade Law Update takes place February 9-10, 2012 in Washington, D.C.  The 2012 International Trade Update  is sponsored by the Georgetown University Law Center. The conference is sure to provide you practical, topical, and timely information that you can use back at your desk – whether you are a private practitioner, government attorney, or in-house counsel.

According to the press release:

This year’s program aims to provide you with the most important new developments affecting the trade and customs bars, as well as critical interpretations of those developments by senior partners at law firms, top government officials, judges, and corporate counsel.

My presentation is entitled “U.S. Customs and Border Protection Administrative Enforcement Process:  Fines, Penalties, Forfeitures and Liquidated Damages Overview”. Just like my fellow panelists, John Connors who is Chief of the CBP Penalties Branch, and Richard Belanger who is a partner at Sidley Austin, the presentation is aimed at the experienced customs and international practitioner who is already familiar with the basic policies and procedures of CBP.

For those interested in attending the conference, more information is available on the website.
