IE University and ITAM (Mexico) sign a partnership agreement to offer dual law programs
The agreement will allow law students from both universities to obtain two degrees in five years: the Bachelor of Laws in Spain and Mexico and a Bachelor of Laws in Mexico and an LLM at IE.
IE Law School at IE University and the Law School of Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM) in Mexico City have signed a collaboration agreement to offer a new Dual Degree law program from both institutions. This program will allow law students to obtain two degrees: a Bachelor of Laws in Spain and a Bachelor of Laws in Mexico (a professional degree granted by the Mexican government).
Students in the program will spend the first three years of their law degree studying at IE University in Madrid, Spain. The last two years will be completed at ITAM in Mexico City.
The aim of this agreement is to train lawyers who understand different legal systems in order to facilitate their professional practice in other countries. It also allows students to learn about law from a global and business perspective.

Alumni create LegoLex, a legal startup that helps early stage ventures hit the ground running
LegoLex Legal Services Network, a startup founded by three IE Law School alumni, has been named one most Innovative Legal tech Startup in Spain of the 2020 Awards of Acquisition International Magazine. Find out the many twists and turns in their path towards success.
The journey of LegoLex has been full of twists and turns. Starting out as an Exclusive International Network of Specialist law firms, in the early years they focused on assisting venture-funded scaleups in their expansion efforts, connecting them quickly with the best lawyers in their destination jurisdictions. Due to the COVID pandemic, however, companies continuing in their international expansion slowed down, or even stopped entirely, in many target industries and they had to adapt quickly in order to survive.
In this quest for survival, they discovered a glaring problem in the market faced by countless startups. A vast number of law firms currently assisting startups in their early stages don’t seem to understand the real needs of entrepreneurs. Moreover, they charge these startups thousands and thousands of euros for fundamental legal documents, leaving entrepreneurs with a burning hole in their wallets for some expensive templates.

The renewal of the Pérez-Llorca/IE Commercial Law Chair reinvigorates international research on commercial law
The renewal of the Pérez-Llorca/IE Commercial Law Chair reinforces the institutions’ combined commitment to legal research on commercial law issues that impact international markets. For the last ten years, this initiative—which was co-created by IE Law School and law firm Pérez-Llorca—has been dedicated to commercial law research and knowledge-sharing with the wider legal community.
Over the years, the Chair has become a reference point in Spain and a forum for reflecting upon today’s most pressing legal developments. The initiative has held seminars in Madrid, Barcelona, New York and Miami with the participation of academics, judges and lawyers who have reflected upon and deepened their understanding of contemporary legal topics. Some of the topics that the Chair has dove into include corporate governance from a European and US perspective; the interaction between arbitration and jurisdiction; and acquisition strategies in Europe and the US.
Moving forward, the Chair will continue to take a comparative and international approach to commercial law, always considering different legal systems and countries. As a center for debate and reflection on regulatory changes and trends in commercial law, the Pérez-Llorca/IE Commercial Law Chair is dedicated to internationalization.
