10 Faculty winter reading recommendations

With the holiday break around the corner and looking ahead to 2019, it’s the perfect time of the year to curl up with a good book and a steaming hot drink. Our professors have provided plenty of book recommendations for you to choose from.

IE Law School faculty members share their winter break reading recommendations, pulling from the worlds of history, fiction and technology. Be it mid-century America, modern day imagination, Renaissance Florence or Classical Athens, our faculty share the books they enjoyed outside the classroom.

They explain why the books appealed to them and why they think you, too, may find them well worth reading.

From the Code of Hammurabi to the binary code: Why lawyers should learn to code

There is growing debate as to whether lawyers and legal practitioners need to learn to code or not. Is this a trend or a profound change in the legal industry?

Historically, law has been a code, but today the codes of law are different in nature. From the Babylonian code of law and the Code of Hammurabi, to the computer protocol code behind smart contracts, law and code have are, and have always been linked.

The technological disruption has rapidly become a driver of innovation in civil society. We are currently facing a digital transformation, a profound revolution of all businesses and organizations, processes, competencies and economic models, which leverages the changes and opportunities of the new economy. The digital transformation affects all sectors and every aspect of companies. In this new reality, all industries are affected and there are no reasons why lawyers’ shouldn´t be part of this profound transformation.

Digital transformation provides the legal industry with unknown opportunities for creating value. Several years ago, it took Fortune 500 companies an average of 20 years to reach a billion-dollar valuation. Today’s digital start-ups are getting there in less than 4 years. These rapid advances in digital technology are redefining not only society but also the legal industry, pressured to catch up with the tech scenario.
