IE Law School is a global, diverse and multidisciplinary law school like no other, known for its international mindset, innovation and impact. We transcend legal cultures, jurisdictions and legal traditions. We impact society with our teaching and research, and we educate students with a global mindset to practice the legal professions. 

We are a global law school with an international community of students and faculty, and we are global, above all, because we teach internationally-minded citizens, jurists and lawyers. We do so because this provides the most sophisticated and comprehensive legal education that our graduates require to succeed in today’s evolving legal market. As a law school, we are diverse in a unique way; in the origin and educational systems of our students, in the diversity of research interests and professional experience within our faculty, and in our research, teaching and collaboration with institutions of diverse legal systems. 

We are multidisciplinary, as we believe that the law cannot be practiced or taught in isolation from other disciplines: economics, philosophy, environmental sciences or technology … our students are taught beyond legal disciplines, and we approach legal studies in the context of other disciplines. I am honored to lead a law school with a soul; a school that makes a relevant impact on its graduates, its alumni and its community. Together, we will make a meaningful difference in the world through the transformative power of law. Welcome to our vibrant community.
