Furnish to teach NAFTA course for Baylor in Mexico
Dale Furnish, emeritus professor of law, will teach a course in August on the North American Free Trade Agreement at Baylor Law School’s summer program in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.
Furnish has taught courses on contracts, secured transactions and other Uniform Commercial Code topics, creditor-debtor, bankruptcy, Mexican (comparative) law and NAFTA.
He enjoys an international reputation for his work in comparative law and International commercial and trade law, as well as U.S. commercial law.
He is a roster member of the United States Panel of Arbitrators for NAFTA Chapter 19 disputes. As a director of the National Law Center for Inter-American Free Trade (NLCIFT), he participated in drafting a model inter-American law of secured transactions approved by the Organization of American States in 2002, and its correlative model regulations for a secured transactions registry approved by the OAS in 2009. He continues to work with the NLCIFT on law reforms that should stimulate more vigorous use of credit, and the growth of commerce and employment to alleviate poverty throughout the Americas and beyond. He has worked to reform secured transactions regimes in Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras and Tanzania since his retirement in 2004.
