Professor Johanna Jacobsson appeared as a witness before the International Trade Committee of the House of Commons of the UK

Professor Johanna Jacobsson, International and European Law Professor at IE Law School, appeared as a witness before the International Trade Committee of the House of Commons of the United Kingdom on 26 June 2019. She took part to the Committee’s inquiry into UK Trade in Services.

The purpose of the UK Parliament’s inquiry is to examine the main barriers faced by UK services exporters, how the UK should seek to liberalise international trade in services, including negotiating international agreements, and potential domestic policy implications. Through the inquiry, the UK legislators are therefore aiming to understand how to formulate UK’s post-Brexit trade strategy in services.

So far the public discourse in the UK has focused on trade in goods but the UK legislators are now starting to engage with the necessary and difficult task to understand how UK can liberalize services trade once the country is outside the EU. Services trade is of crucial importance to the UK considering that services are taking up a fast-growing percentage of the country’s exports and may cover as much as a half of the exports in the coming years. However, much depends on the international trade rules that UK manages to secure after Brexit.

IE Law School signs an agreement with BARBRI and becomes the first European law school that allows LL.M. students to qualify as a US attorney

With this new agreement, IE Law School becomes the first European Law School to offer LLM students the opportunity to study American law and acquire the necessary credentials to make global practice a reality.

As we live in an increasingly globalized, interdependent world and the demand for legal professionals who understand the workings and complexities of more than one legal system continues to grow, we need to train lawyers with a global mindset.

At IE Law School, we are committed to fostering global legal education so that lawyers can pursue careers internationally, across different legal systems, and manage trans-border transactions and multijurisdictional issues. In order to bridge the gap, we have partnered with Barbri, the number one bar examination review course in the United States, to give our LL.M. students the chance to take the California Bar Examination and become qualified to practice law in the US.

Two papers authored by Professor Giulio Allevato have been recently published

In the last book “Combating Tax Avoidance in the EU”, Professor Allevato analyses the main peculiarities, under a legal perspective, of the recent EU Commission’s decisions on the qualifications as State Aid of several advance tax ruling granted by Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands to multinational enterprises, as well as the potential implications of such decisions on the future developments of direct taxation within the EU.

With the chapter titled “The Commission’s State Aid Decisions on Advance Tax Rulings: Criticisms and Potential Impact on the Future of Direct Taxation Within the European Union”, Prof. Allevato contributed to the book “Combating Tax Avoidance in the European Union: Harmonization and Cooperation in Direct Taxation” (Ed. J.M. Almudí, J.A. Ferreras Gutiérrez, P. Hernández González-Barreda), published by Wolters Kluwer. The book includes contributions by many international tax scholars on the current and future tax scenario in the EU, with specific regard to the fight to tax avoidance.

Prof. Allevato’s contribution analyses the main peculiarities, under a legal perspective, of the recent EU Commission’s decisions on the qualifications as State Aid of several advance tax ruling granted by Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands to multinational enterprises (e.g. Amazon, Apple, Starbucks). Furthermore, the potential implications of such decisions on the future developments of direct taxation within the EU are discussed.

The other paper – published in a top Italian journal of management (“Economia&Management”) discusses the results of a research, conducted in 2017, on the evolution of the tax director’s role and functions, and, in particular, highlights how today´s tax directors need to possess not just highly technical skills but also significant managerial skills, as their involvement in strategic business decisions is constantly increasing.
