THE FUTURE IS LOOKING FOR YOU
About IE Law School
OUR COMMITMENT FOR YOUR LEARNING
To achieve this, our undergraduate and graduate programs focus on a diverse set of sectors and practices, many of which go beyond the boundaries of traditional legal education. In addition to law, our students also gain insights into disciplines such as business management, economics, politics, philosophy and the humanities.
Within our overall learning objectives, we place special emphasis on business law, which touches on all aspects of modern society and is directly relevant to students’ professional trajectories. Alongside this, students explore the intersection between law and technology, and the application of technological solutions that allow the provision of legal services through digital means.
WHY IE LAW SCHOOL
BUSINESSBreaking down barriers between disciplines
A strong business focus
We understand that the future of the legal industry lies in the ever-changing and interwoven relationship between law, business and economics. As an integral part of IE University, IE Law School boasts a world-renowned faculty that includes prestigious industry leaders and top professors from IE Business School. We set ourselves apart from the rest with our strong focus on business and corporate law, and a uniquely global, entrepreneurial and tech-forward perspective that blends theory with hands-on experience.
All of our programs include a core business module designed to offer students the skills, financial literacy and managerial knowledge needed to stay ahead in the increasingly competitive corporate world. One of our main objectives is to help students unlock their own capacity to drive transformation. By giving them access to initiatives like Area 31, we empower students to develop their business acumen and entrepreneurial skills.
A tech-forward vision
Technological innovation is taking the legal profession to new heights. At IE Law School, we believe that technology is the main catalyst of transformation within the legal sector. For this reason, we teach our students about the power of technology and use the latest technological tools to enhance the educational experience.
The legaltech module—which is offered in each program—exposes students to the most cutting-edge and disruptive concepts surrounding the use of technology in legal processes. What’s more, with renowned experts in new and emerging legal disciplines driving program development and participating in IE Law School initiatives, students have access to a wealth of real-world insights.
Our extensive experience in this area has allowed us to stand out internationally, as top law firms look to us as a benchmark for their own tech transformation.
INNOVATIONPioneers on global legal education
A step beyond the future of legal education
Facing globalization, becoming an ally with technology and recognize opportunities on tough challenges are part of our DNA, yet sharing our knowledge is our greatest pride.
This year, IE Law School has been designated as the coordinator of a global and ambitious research project by the International Bar Association and the Law Schools Global League to develop a blueprint for global legal education that will help legal education institutions to understand how globalization and technology impact legal education globally.
In this ambitious project, more than 400 bar associations, law schools, and other legal institutions are expected to participate.
FACULTYLeading innovation in the new era of law
A world-renowned academic offering
Our faculty members are leading researchers, top professionals and respected thinkers who draw on their extensive knowledge and experience to offer students meaningful insights. IE Law School is firmly committed to building an academic community through different initiatives, such as the LawAhead Hub. As they create a dynamic space for networking and idea-sharing, IE Law School sees each event, conference and seminar as a chance for students to directly engage with the legal world, building their skill set in the process.
Our contact with today’s legal industry allows us to integrate, in real time, current legal realities into program content. While students explore a vast array of legal perspectives, they also have the opportunity to explore comparative law using our practice-based methodology.

LIQUID LEARNING: THE IDEAL MODEL FOR A LEGAL LANDSCAPE THAT FLOWS ACROSS BORDERS
IE University’s Liquid Learning model greatly expands the scope of our teaching. Through Liquid Learning, students are better prepared to succeed in international legal practice. With a broader skill set, they are empowered to become more self-reliant and flexible as they define their own learning journey and lay the path for their professional future.
IE Law students are guided on their journey by our outstanding faculty, which boasts a diverse mix of nationalities, international academic achievements and professional experience, each with a unique style and background. They follow the best legal training methodologies—particularly the legal case method—while applying their own, innovative techniques.Discover the Liquid Learning Model
As today’s social, economic and political borders are more open than ever, a new, up-to-date approach to the study of law is required. For that reason, we equip students with a unique and creative global legal mindset, using comparative law to a varying degree, depending on the program.
These methodologies, designed to broaden our students’ global vision, complement immersive, experiential and practical learning experiences like our legal clinic, IE labs and numerous international challenges and competitions.
COMPARATIVE LAW METHODOLOGY
As today’s world is increasingly affected by the transformative effects of globalization, the education sector and legal landscapes are experiencing unparalleled change. For this reason, at IE Law School we offer students holistic, comprehensive legal training thanks to our Comparative Law methodology. Across legal disciplines, our main concern is to consistently adopt a comparative perspective, encouraging students to develop a more international legal vision.
SIGNIFICANCE AND PROMINENCE IN THE CORPORATE WORLD
We have established a number of strategic partnerships with other leading international law schools, giving our students the opportunity to graduate with certifications from our partners in addition to their IE Law School degree. Thanks to this truly global profile, IE Law School is uniquely positioned to respond to the increasing demand for cross-border lawyers.
