Contracts and Property Law

IE University students are curious, proactive, and don’t take much for granted. They challenge the solutions that legal systems provide and are very creative in offering an alternative answer. Comparative law fosters this mindset as solutions vary between jurisdictions. IE University students see this as normal—which is not the case of students from degrees that only focus on a single jurisdiction.

Unlike studying a specific national law, comparative law is a window of opportunity for creative minds. In a legal context that is global and constantly changing, a creative mind, equipped with solid legal knowledge from various jurisdictions, provides IE University students with a competitive advantage.
