Global, Comparative and European Law

A global learning experience

Aware that the law is moving beyond borders to respond to the challenges of an increasingly globalized world, IE Law School is committed in offering a global experience and training.

At IE Law School, we firmly believe that our students must be prepared to be actors in the evolution that the law is experiencing. In all our undergraduate and postgraduate programs, European Union Law is an essential component and many of our programs have a unique international and comparative approach, allowing our students to gain a global vision of the law that will prepare them for the world. The LLM in International Business Law, the LLM in Derecho Transnacional de los Negocios, the Master in Global Corporate Compliance (LLM), the Master in Global Taxation (LLM) and our undergraduate programs, the Bachelor in Politics, Law and Economics, and the Bachelor of Laws, are a clear example of our commitment with this global vision of the law.

With the goal to enrich the global learning experience even further, IE Law School collaborates with prestigious academic institutions from all over the world, offering exchange programs, double degrees, joint programs and other initiatives.

The Center for European Studies at IE Law School, as well as the Jean Monnet Module, offer our students the opportunity to deepen their analysis and knowledge of current European and international issues.

The Comparative Law Methodology

The Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) incorporates the comparative law methodology in the legal training of future lawyers. Discover from several professors of Universities around Europe why learning law with the comparative methodology is important for future lawyers in an increasingly globalized world.

The European Module Jean Monnet "Towards a Common Private Law of Europe"

The European Commission has expressly endorsed this innovative approach by granting IE University this European Module within the prestigious Jean Monnet Program, under the direction of Professor Marco de Benito.

The purpose of the Module is thus ultimately to foster the development of a more profound, sophisticated, cosmopolitan understanding of the law, and incorporate the comparative standpoint naturally into their future legal practice.
