Answer ONE of the following three questions:
Question 1
Klausland acceded to the WTO in 2008. As a small pacific island developing country, Klausland is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. As part of its long-term national energy and climate change strategy, the government of Klausland decided to produce wind turbine technologies to meet the country’s energy needs.
As part of its programme of regulatory reform, Klausland started to apply the following trade restrictions:
1.1. ad valorem customs duties of 20 per cent on foreign wind turbine technologies; but an ad valorem customs duty of 15 per cent on solar panel technologies (which also reduce green house gas emissions)
1.2. A lower custom duty of 5% was applicable to the imports of wind turbines and solar panels from Samoa, which is a neighboring island country.
1.3. A ban on the imports of oil and gas from other countries because of concerns over the release of green house gas into the atmosphere which cause climate change.
1.4. Quantitative restriction in the form of quotas of 100 units yearly on foreign wind turbine technologies, so as to protect its local manufactures from international competition.
1.5. all the imports of wind turbine or solar panel technologies had to take place in the port of Didier, in the north of Klausland.
1.6. A customs handling fee of 1 per cent was applicable in all imports into the country, with the view of supporting local social and environmental projects.
Moreover, in general Klausland applied an internal tax of 20% on domestic sales of both domestic and foreign manufactured wind turbines and solar panel technologies. However:
1.7. A lower tax rate of 15% was applicable to domestic sales of wind turbines manufactured in the neighboring country Samoa; or by the state-owned energy company Madras.
1.8 It exempted from internal taxes any wind turbine or solar panels, both domestically and internationally produced, which contained fewer assembly parts making it easier for them to be recycled after decommissioning.
Furthermore, the national law in Klausland required that:
1.9 A minimum sales price requirement of at least $5,000 per unit for all wind turbines sold in the country
1.10 Government bodies must use only nationally produced solar panels in government departments and offices.
Despite the trade restrictive measures introduced by Klausland, the national manufacturers are still unable to compete with foreign manufacturers of wind turbines and solar panel technologies, who maintain 70% share of the domestic market. The domestic manufactures then start to lobby the government of Klausland to impose the following measures:
1.11. Impose anti-dumping duties on three of the main exporter countries of wind turbines and solar panels to Klausland.
1.12. Impose counter-veiling duties on wind turbines from China, whose government is suspected to be subsidizing its local manufacturers of wind turbine technologies.
An eminent international trade lawyer, you are asked to give legal advice to the government of Klausland on the legality of the above mentioned measures under international trade law.

Question 2
‘The adoption of the Bali Agreement in December 2013 was only a modest development towards the liberalization of world trade. The WTO Doha Round of Negotiations has so far failed to reform WTO law for further liberalization of trade in agricultural products, in particular the phasing out of subsidies which prevent the access of producers in developing countries to the markets of developed countries. Moreover, Doha has so far failed to address the intricate questions surrounding further liberalization of trade in services; and the strengthening of the global regime governing the protection of intellectual property rights, which needs to be reconciled with the interest of developing countries to gain access to vital patented drugs developed by foreign pharmaceutical companies.”

Question 3
In the summer of 2007, a UK Pension Fund invests £150,000 on Collaterised Debt Obligations (CDOs) and £100,000 on shares from Baribas Ltd bank, relying on the advice of Credit Rating Agency Moody’s, which released a report giving a high credit rating (AA) to Baribas and its CDOs.
Representing a group of investors, the UK Pension Fund decides to bring legal action before the English High Court in 2012 against Baribas bank, the Credit Rating Agency Moddy’s and the UK Financial Services Authority, claiming that the following violates international, EU and UK law:
1) The investment bankers working for Baribas were incentivized to make riskier investments due to an internal banking culture that authorized higher bonuses and no penalties linked to irresponsible risk-taking.
2) Despite pressure from its shareholders and investors, Baribas has refrained from disclosing vital financial information in its annual financial reports.
3) The financial reports, released after shareholder’s action, suggested that the CDOs were based on subprime mortgages that could not be repaid. Despite being aware of this, the Credit Rating Agency Moddy’s gave the CDOs high credit ratings.
4) Baribas only held 4% capital in risk-weighed assets; and its leverage-ratio was 15:1. Baribas becomes insolvent as it had too much exposure to the CDOs, leading to the collapse of other banks and insurance companies that had exposures to or insured Baribas’ CDOs.
5) A group of depositors have tried to claim the full value of their deposits back after Baribas’ collapse, but were told that they could only receive up to 3,000 Euros.
6) Despite being aware of the excessive risk taken by some employees at Baribas, the UK Financial Services Authority has failed to take any action.
An eminent international lawyer, you are hired by the UK Pension Fund to write a piece of legal advice on the application of international, EU and UK law (including the post-crisis regulatory reforms) to the above scenario.
