IE Legal Challenge 2022 con Baker McKenzie | IE Law School

This is how the newest edition of the IE Law School & Baker McKenzie Legal Challenge operates—a Final Master’s Project model completely unique in Spain

This challenge is the final project for the Dobles Másters en Abogacía, where IE Law School students are faced with genuine legal cases.

Once again this year, students of the Dobles Másters en Acceso a la Abogacía at IE Law School have participated in the Legal Challenge that the university organizes alongside the multinational law firm Baker McKenzie. The only one of its kind among Spanish law schools, this challenge is both a Final Master’s Project for students of the Dobles Másters en Abogacía and also an opportunity to put what they have learned into practice.

In this year’s edition, participants had to apply their knowledge to a complex acquisition transaction. To do so, they utilized their entire legal knowledge base, delving into fields such as taxation and the structuring of legal transactions, as well as displaying their commercial abilities and presentation skills.
