THE JOSÉ MARÍA CERVELLÓ BUSINESS LAW AWARDS RETURN FOR THEIR 15th EDITION

cervello-xv

The previous edition of the José María Cervelló Awards for Business Law was a fascinating event that captivated all attendees. Its main theme, Freedom of expression and its boundaries in a global and interconnected world, took on even greater relevance by being held virtually via IE University’s WOW Room, as a result of the pandemic.

In 2021, the José María Cervelló Chair and ONTIER España will celebrate the fifteenth edition under the theme of “Sustainability and Corporate Governance.”

The prizes will comprise €10,000 to the author of the best work and a maximum of two special mentions to works that deserve recognition for their excellence and quality. Finally, €20,000 will be granted to the José María Cervelló Chair for its scholarship program for students enrolled on legal and/or tax programs at IE Law School.

Participants, Spanish or foreign, with an undergraduate or graduate degree in law may submit their entry until Thursday, September 23, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. The awards ceremony will take place in October or November 2021 at IE Law School.

The José María Cervelló Chair:

The José María Cervelló Chair is part of the knowledge generation area of the IE Foundation and carries the full support of IE Law School and the law firm ONTIER.

As well as awarding the José María Cervelló Business Law prizes, the Chair finances the education of law and economics students at IE Law School with the support of ONTIER. This aid is based on students’ outstanding academic merit and demonstrable financial difficulties.

The Chair’s work also extends to three other areas: the teaching of professional ethics, research, and the dissemination of knowledge. To that end, the Chair organizes conferences, seminars and debates, publishes papers in national and international journals, and supports students’ research at IE Law School.
