IE Law School, academic partner of the Madrid Bar Association

IE Law School, academic partner of the Madrid Bar Association during its 425th anniversary celebrations

The Madrid Bar Association (ICAM) recently celebrated its 425th anniversary with a full program of events that took place from June 13-17.

This year, IE University had the honor of hosting two commemorative academic days as well as the anniversary’s closing ceremony at the IE Tower.

The celebration program began with a solemn ceremony conducted by His Majesty Felipe VI, with more than 300 legal professionals swearing an oath to the Spanish Crown, the country’s constitution and the legal profession. Throughout the week, different institutional events were held, culminating in the celebration of two academic days on June 16 and 17 at IE University’s IE Tower.

These academic days were inaugurated by Santiago Iñiguez, president of IE University, and José María Alonso, dean of the ICAM, who also offered insight into the reasons for IE University’s participation in the event. “We needed the right partner, one that is fully focused on the future. Naturally, it had to be IE University,” he noted, explaining why the institution was selected as the academic partner of the celebrations. During the same ceremony, Santiago Iñiguez elaborated on IE University’s educational values. “Education is the most powerful driver of socially equality. For this reason, IE University is committed to providing the best possible programs, focusing on the international, entrepreneurship and sustainability components.”

The Pérez-Llorca/IE Commercial Law Chair analyzes the constitutional doctrine and the annulment of arbitration awards

In their most recent seminar, the Pérez-Llorca/IE Commercial Law Chair analyzed the recent constitutional doctrine relating to the annulment of arbitration awards, regarding the concept of public policy.

The conference was opened by Soledad Atienza, Dean of IE Law School, and moderated by Silvia de Paz, Litigation and Arbitration lawyer at Pérez-Llorca. The speakers were Cándido Conde-Pumpido, Magistrate of the Constitutional Court; Ana Serra e Moura, Deputy Secretary General of the International Court of Arbitration at the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and Master of Laws (LL.M.) professor in the field of International Dispute Resolution; and Ignacio Santabaya, Litigation and Arbitration Partner at Pérez-Llorca and professor at IE Law School.

Cándido Conde-Pumpido began by outlining fundamental clauses from the recent Constitutional Court rulings 46/2020 of June 15, and 17/2021 of February 15, stipulating the annulment of arbitration awards. These have led to the consolidation of the jurisprudential doctrine on the subject. The magistrate explained the background that has given rise to this doctrine and, specifically, the line of case law adopted by the Madrid High Court of Justice on the annulment of awards. This laid the foundation for an extensive interpretation of the concept of public policy as a ground for annulment, going so far as to review the merits of arbitration awards.
