Aimed at young legal professionals, the LL.M. is created to be adapted to every student’s journey and offers students three areas of specialization: International Dispute Resolution, International Business Law and Intellectual Property & Technology Law. The program starts on October 2021 and will have a duration of one academic year. The program includes immersive experiences, allowing participants to acquire the knowledge, skills and tools needed kick-start an exciting career in the legal sector.

Defined by its comparative methodology and international orientation, the Master of Laws (LL.M.) gives students hands-on experience in skills such as cross-border transactions and transnational law to propel their international ambitions.

The program is designed so that students gain a broader mindset and skills in the areas of management, leadership, technology, communication, negotiation and beyond. These skills will directly impact graduates’ potential in the sector, as recruiters increasingly look for well-rounded “T-shaped” lawyers. As part of top ranked IE Business School, a recognized center of excellence in business training, students will benefit from the expertise and knowledge of the School’s top professors.

Soledad Atienza, Dean of IE Law School, said: “At a time of transformation in the legal sector, we are thrilled to announce our new LL.M. program, an important milestone for the School. The new LL.M. is designed to train lawyers to develop the knowledge, tools, experience and mindset needed to prepare them to succeed in an international context.”

“Our specializations in Business Law, International Dispute Resolution and IP & Technology Law, will provide the next generation of lawyers the needed hands-on experience and skills needed in todays’ most dynamic and major fields of legal practice.”

In addition to the LL.M., IE Law School offers numerous other undergrad programs, Master programs for young graduates and professionals, and Executive Education programs for executives and life-long learners. In its 35 years of history, more than 10,000 lawyers and professionals have been trained through its classrooms.
