This article considers how the WTO judicial organs should determine the standard of review in the case they decide. It argues that a key factor should be the relative strengths of the WTO adjudicatory organs and domestic governments. On this bais, it explains when review at the WTO should be de novo, when it should be an intermediate review, and when it should largely defer to the decisions of member states. In the process, it compares these normative claims to existing WTO practice.
