IE Law School hosts Law Without Walls kick off at Segovia
The “KickOff” in Segovia was an opportunity to get to know the teams and the mentors, and to engage with professionals and entrepreneurs from the fields of law and business to create an invaluable global network.
On January 19 and 20, IE Law School hosted Law Without Walls Kick Off in IE University´s Segovia Campus. Nearly 200 students, professors, entrepreneurs, legal and business experts from law firms and companies –such as Elevate, Axiom, Eversheds, Microsoft and many others – reunited to rethink the profession and propose cutting-edge solutions to issues faced by lawyers and law programs as well as to assess the future of the legal practice in an international and diverse environment.
Thirty of the world’s top international law schools — including Harvard Law School, UCL Laws, Stanford Law School, Fordham Law School, University of St Gallen, among others— participate in LawWithoutWalls and team their students with two lawyer team leaders along with an academic, business, and entrepreneur mentor. The teams identify a problem related to law, business, and technology and develops a practicable solution (including a prototype and a business plan). In the process, LWOW: Refines 21st Century professional skills including entrepreneurial, leadership, presentation, networking, technology, teamwork, project management, business, and cultural competency; recharges the law market with innovations across law, business, and technology and revitalizes relationships with colleagues, clients, and future talent across the globe.
