To wrap up their first day, students enjoyed lunch and had the opportunity to meet their new classmates and faculty members.
Talking about Innovation & Law at South Summit
Macarena Plaza Vela, Head of Innovation and International Programmes at IE Law School, held a fascinating conversation at South Summit with IE Law School alumni, founder and CEO of Spotahome, Alejandro Artacho, and professor and director of our Legal Tech programs, Alejandro Touriño. In a 40 minute talk, these top experts in the field explored the intersection of innovation and law and how IE Law School is reinventing legal education to drive change in the legal sector.
"Students today are very keen about technology and want to adapt to the changes we are seeing in the world", said Alejandro Touriño, while Alejandro Artacho emphasized the value of having an entrepreneurial mindset: "A business approach is key for finding solutions to everyday problems", concluded Artacho, winner of the South Summit competition last year.
