Chairs and Center of Excellence

Our Chairs are supported by prestigious companies and institutions

A space where groundbreaking faculty research happens, attracting a wide range of experts to join the conversation on emerging and traditional areas of law.

Through our Chairs and Center of Excellence, IE Law School encourages research applied to the specific needs of the legal world. Additionally, IE has other centers financed and supported by companies with different sectors of activity that complement and enrich IE’s academic knowledge.


One of our central missions as a prestigious, world-renowned educational institution is to create an environment that supports knowledge and innovative research initiatives, while attracting leading experts and academics. In recognition of our innovative approach to education, we received the Jean Monnet Chair from the European Commission (EC). With this fellowship, IE University was selected to develop the European module: “Towards a Common Private Law of Europe.” Click on the links below to learn more about our other fellowships.
