IE University law students provide legal support to Venture Lab entrepreneurs
LL.M. students, María Teresa Pérez y Noemí Seco de Herrera, gave legal advice to startups participating in IE’s Venture Lab. They tell us what they learned from the experience.
The Venture Lab is IE University’s startup incubator, designed for students and alumni to explore market opportunities, incubate ideas and accelerate business. There are currently 100 teams in multiple Venture Labs across undergraduate and master’s programs. The Venture Lab provides students across all disciplines with classes, workshops, mentors and investors.
Most of the startups come to the incubator lacking some of the necessary tools to succeed, such as legal knowledge. The aim of integrating the Venture Lab into the students extracurricular activity is to provide legal advice to those entrepreneurs who need it, and to allow law students to apply the legal knowledge they’ve learned in the classroom.

Legal clinics and pro bono work: raising awareness today for a better tomorrow
Our commitment as an institution is to be involved in shaping our future society and investing in a more sustainable world.
Sara Sánchez Fernández co-directs the Legal Clinic at IE Law School, which was created with Francisco de Elizalde in 2014. Fernández, who has a PhD in law, is convinced that legal clinics have the potential to raise awareness among students about the importance of contributing to “a better world.”
After five years at the Legal Clinic, what would you say are the distinguishing elements of your clinical education model?
We support projects with social impact. The cases also have a large international component due to the comparative law methodology that is embedded in our university’s DNA. Having students from different parts of the world facilitates access to and understanding of primary legal sources. For example, we are working on a project with the Max Planck Foundation for International Peace and the Rule of Law to review the Chilean constitution, which draws from analysis of similar reform processes in other countries. In addition to the social and international nature of several of our affairs, the institution’s innate entrepreneurial spirit leads us to develop projects with social entrepreneurs.
