In their words: The many paths of a successful career in law

Three IE Law School alumni describe their experience in today’s legal landscape. From a legal tech entrepreneur who founded his own startup to a corporate global lawyer, learn how IE paved their path to success.

At IE Law School, our programs – from a Bachelor Degree to an LLM in Business Law and beyond– are designed to mirror current developments, providing our students with the skills to take on dynamic positions in today’s legal landscape. With this approach, it comes as no surprise that our incredible alumni work in diverse sectors, with vastly different day-to-day lives. In a recent online webinar, some of these former students shared their experiences and insights of today’s reality as a legal professional. The discussion featured Isabella Ruiz de Rato, a lawyer at Cuatrecasas in London, Calum Hedigan, co-founder of Legolex (LegalTech) in Madrid, and Álvaro Hernández Vidal, a lawyer at Ontier, also based in Madrid.

The IE Compliance Club: A student led initiative that fosters ethical business practices for a sustainable society

The IE Compliance Club, founded by a group of students of the Master in Global Corporate Compliance, seeks to foster discussions that are the basis of ethical organizations and sustainable societies.

Paulo Santos (Brazil), Aaisha Mohamed Anees (Dubai), Estefani Morelli (Colombia), Ryan Winkler (USA) and Elene Jgerenaia (Georgia), came together earlier this year to found the IE Compliance Club. With diverse backgrounds– from law and political sciences to business and finance– these five LL.M. students share the same convictions that drive sustainability and ethics in organizations and society.

“The Club was founded with the purpose of fostering discussions on areas touching compliance (e.g., corruption, money laundering, cybersecurity, corporate governance, fraud, forensics and equality) as well as transparency, independence, and accountability. We believe that ethical business practices, alongside integrity, are the basis of a sustainable society, therefore we want to encourage the maintenance of long-term value-driven culture”, they explain.

We applaud students’ initiatives that step up to show their convictions and leadership. Know more about their activities and mission.

IE Law School, IBA and LSGL launch the Blueprint Project for the future global legal education

IE Law School has been designated as the coordinator of the research project by the International Bar Association (IBA) and the Law Schools Global League (LSGL) to develop a blueprint for global legal education to understand how globalization and technology impact legal education globally.

This global project, titled Developing a Blueprint for Global Legal Education, aims to contribute to legal education around the world by identifying the key drivers that are shaping legal education at a global level, the responses that are emerging, and the extent to which those responses are or can address sufficiently the challenges and opportunities confronting legal professions all over the world.

This joint initiative forms part of the ongoing research by the IBA’s Commission on the Future of Legal Services into the trends that are shaping the legal profession. More than 400 bar associations, law schools and other legal institutions are expected to participate in the three-phase project, which will culminate in the publication of a report to be showcased at the IBA’s Annual Conference in Miami, in November 2020.

Through the analysis of the relevant literature, law schools websites, online surveys and interviews with key stakeholders from around the world, what this project intends is to develop a blueprint that will help legal education institutions navigate the ongoing paradigm change.
