At IE Law School, we are committed to legal research and the promotion of law not only within our classrooms but in all areas of society. In addition, we want our students to have access to leading experts and academics in the legal field and be able to learn from them. Our Centers of Knowledge Exchange, founded with the support of leading companies from multiple sectors, help us fulfill this mission while fostering knowledge sharing and enriching the training provided at our institution.
