THE LEGAL CLINIC
The legal clinic is a lab that provides students with hands-on experience on law practice. The Legal Clinic students supervise, support, and advice other labs and initiatives in legal matters. This lab provides special support to startups and new projects, and also to the Social Impact Lab. In addition, the Legal Clinic also provides legal assistance to NGOs and other organizations that seek the help of legal advisors.

Law Without Walls
LWOW unites more than 100 students from 30 different law and business schools worldwide. During 4 months, the different teams will identify a problem in the way of teaching or practicing law, and will develop a business plan and startup project to tackle these complications.
Each edition starts with a KickOff session, both virtually or in-person, comprised of exercises to foster innovation and ideas generation, team-building activities, self-assessment, and presentation skills workshops. In a “challenge” like style, teams develop innovative ideas over the course of two days. Finally, the event concludes with the ConPosium, where teams present their ideas to a panel of multidisciplinary judges who evaluate the viability, creativity and content of the different projects presented.
