IE Law School is always committed to the inclusion of immersive technologies in education. This time, more than 90 students from the “Doble Máster en Abogacía y Asesoría Jurídica de Empresas” and the “Doble Máster en Abogacía y Asesoría Fiscal de Empresas” were able to travel to a Virtual Reality (VR) space to participate in a class about ‘Decision-making in uncertain environments’.

Virtual Reality in class is an educational tool with great potential and can be very useful in legal skills courses. For this reason, IE University is a pioneer thanks to the development of its own virtual world in Spatial.io -an immersive and interconnected space, created by the Danish VR designer Maya Kaaki, in which students can attend classes, visit exhibitions, or hold events, among other activities-.

The students carried out this innovative practical exercise by negotiating with their avatars through their VR glasses, noting how this tool allowed them, among other things, to improve their concentration.

According to Pilar Galeote, Professor of Negotiation and Corporate Law at IE Law School and Director of the Cervelló Chair, “Interaction with avatars allows students to immerse themselves in situations where, due to the abstraction surrounding them, they can make decisions different from those taken in other environments, such as a normal classr This is a tool that undoubtedly represents a challenge in today’s teaching methodology.”
