Javier Cendra | IE Law School

Dean of IE Law School discusses the future of legal education at enlightED 2019

Javier de Cendra led a discussion panel on "Reinventing Legal Education in the Era of the Tech Revolution" at enlightED in Madrid. Leading experts discussed the main challenges faced by legal education, including technology, globalization and ethics.

“Law schools have forgotten what it means to train lawyers… Law is a vocation designed to help others.” This is how Javier de Cendra, Dean of IE Law School, opened the eye-opening discussion entitled Reinventing Legal Education in the Era of the Tech Revolution at enlightED in Madrid.

The talk, which took place on the massive enlightED stage, included three expert panelists: Almudena Arpón de Mendívil, Secretary-General of the International Bar Association (IBA); Jorge Cerdio, from the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México; and Gonzalo Matías, representing the Católica Global School of Law and Co-President of the Law School´s Global League.

Javier opened the discussion reviewing the current state of legal education—specifically in the United States—claiming that the field has been resistant to change. While panelists were all in agreement on this, they each had their own interesting theories and insights as to why.”
