On 8 March IE Law School and Thomson Reuters Aranzadi entered into a collaboration agreement to publish a collection of legal works. The agreement was signed at an event held in IE Business School's main auditorium, which was attended by management from both institutions including the president of Aranzadi's Editorial Board Javier Moscoso del Prado y Muñoz and Javier de Cendra, the new dean of IE Law School.
The agreement was sponsored by IE Law School and IE Publishing, headed by the director of IE Law School's legal department Marie-José Garot and Cynthia Fernández Lázaro, director of Publishing at IE and IE University. The other two main annual activities covered by the agreement involve distribution of IE Law School working papers to TRA (Thomson Reuters Aranzadi) subscribers and clients, and establishing circulation and marketing agreements for jointly developed products.
IE Publishing already has similar agreements with LID Editorial and Palgrave Macmillan, and this project offers a new area for IE law professors to publish their research endeavours. It will prove especially productive as the characteristics of each institution involved complement.
