Season 2 Episode 1 - My guest in the first episode of the second season is Petros C. Mavroidis, Edwin B. Parker Professor of Foreign & Comparative Law Professor at Columbia Law School, leading International Trade academic and CAS (Court of Arbitration for Sport) Arbitrator.
Our conversation delves into a variety of other topics, such as how Petros became a Professor, how the WTO has evolved, his views on the WTO as an institution and what are some of his thoughts on the future of the WTO. He also shares how he got into sports arbitration at CAS and how he really enjoys this part of his work, at one point he even gives a shout-out to Giannis Antetokounmpo, his co-national and reigning NBA MVP! Before concluding he tells us how he manages to fit all this work as well as continuing to research and write on a variety of topics.
