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.
