The IBL program stands-out for its academic rigour in an international framework and its practical approach to the law in the 21th century by introducing immersive experiences where students can apply their knowledge and skills at a practical level.
Students work on cases, simulations and problem solving, thus helping develop analytical and advocacy capabilities and managerial and leadership skills.
Students also have the opportunity to experience law first-hand. From the London and Brussels Week, to the Legal Clinic, the Venture Law Clinic and the Viena Moot Court, IE Law School enriches the students learning experience in different fields.
The MBA Module forms an integral part of the program to provide students with broad knowledge of the fundamentals of business management and strategy, to be able to meet the needs of their future clients in business-related matters.
The LLM in International Business Law is intended for law graduates and lawyers with an international perspective.
The class is composed of people from all over the world, which represents a unique opportunity for students to network and share diverse backgrounds, points of view and cultures while working with lawyers trained in different legal systems.
The professional impact
International law firms and company legal departments increasingly demand lawyers with a global perspective, able to add value in complex international transactions. Students of the LLM in International Business Law work in national and international law firms, legal department of multinationals or financial institutions.
During the program, students will complete their training with the Accelerate Module. This includes activities and workshops designed to help with professional career planning and the search for employment.
Additionally, students have access to IE’s Careers Management Center and its trained career counselors.
I joined the firm immediately after returning to Brazil from the exchange program at Northwestern Law School, in Chicago, which IE had offered me in connection with the LLM in International Business Law. It is safe to say that the combination of the master in Madrid with the exchange program abroad, both in highly regarded schools, caught the attention of my recruiter.

The Global Forum was a learning experience that complemented the rest of our studies, giving context to the more technical and legal subjects we had already completed. International law is inherently political and cultural in nature, and this seminar provided one way for students to acquaint themselves with those aspects.
