Law without walls: reinventing law

Written on February 20, 2013 by Dirk Hopfl in IE University

IE University hosted at the end of January the kick off  of the third interuniversity LawWithoutWalls course  organized by University of Miami School of Law, with students and professors from eighteen international centers. Two students from IE University’s Bachelor of Laws, accompanied by Professor Pedro Letai, represented IE University during the course.

IE University’s Segovia campus is set to receive over a hundred professors and students from eighteen of the world’s top international law schools to explore the state of law education in universities and provide an innovative response to the changes in education and lawyering practice worldwide.

Organized by Miami University, the LawWithoutWalls course will take place in Segovia on January 19 and 20. It will bring together legal professionals, entrepreneurs, professors and students from leading international law schools that include Harvard, Stanford, University College London and IE University.

The meeting is the first of the activities that will comprise the interactive LawWithoutWalls course, led by University of Miami School of Law professors Michele DeStefano and Michael Bossone. This third edition offers a virtual course in which law students will be divided into teams and supervised by mentors from academic and professional fields to tackle a series of online case studies focused on innovative legal issues. IE University will be represented by Pedro Letai and law degree students Marta Ottogalli and IkerRomero.

Segovia will host the face-to-face part of the course, known as KickOff, inwhich participants spend the weekend at IE University exchanging knowledge and experiences to improve lawyering practice and education. The event will afford teams the opportunity to get to know each other and their mentors in person, as well as participate in a range of practical teamwork exercises to generate ideas. Previous courses were held at University College London (UCL) in 2011 and last year in the University of St. Gallenin Switzerland.

Participating schools include Fordham Law, Harvard Law, IE Business School, Indiana University School of Law, Miami Law, New York Law School, Peking University School of Transnational Law, Stanford Law School, Sydney Law School, University of the Andes Law School, University College London Laws, University of St. Gallen Law School, National Law School of India University, Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, Tel Aviv University, Buchmann Faculty of Law, University of Montreal Faculty of Law, University ofSão Paulo Faculty of Law, the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and IE University.

After making contact in Segovia, the teams have to solve an extensive case study over the following four months and will attend weekly online workshops led by experts. They will also take part in additional case resolutions and will round off the course in April in a closing session called ConPosium, held at Miami University (US) where they will present their projects to a judges panel made up of professors and investors.

How do you know a Law degree is for you?

Written on January 3, 2010 by Dirk Hopfl in IE News

Soledad Atienza, the director of the Bachelor of Laws, talks about the future for lawyers, and what it takes to follow your passion. “Nowadays lawyers need more than just legal training to become successful lawyers.  They need to be business oriented, they need to be trained in management, they need to be innovative and they need to be international.”  

 

What made you realize that Law was what you wanted to study?  

I was looking for a program that would open my mind to the professional world, not just to the legal field, but also the business and political world; a program that would help me understand the way the world is run and how companies, governments and people interact.  My law degree has given me the perfect frame to work in different professions, always being able to apply the legal knowledge and skills I have acquired studying law. 

What advice can you give to someone who is considering studying a degree in Law?

 If you want to become a lawyer, you should know that the legal profession is a hard one; if you practice as a lawyer you will have a lot of responsibility and you will work long hours.  But in return it will give you independence and an intellectual profession– Independence because you will have to make decisions concerning your clients based on your own analysis of the situation and recommending what you consider is best for your client or telling them what is right and what is wrong. And it is intellectual because this profession is about studying and thinking.  

This is a degree that will open doors to the professional world.  You will be trained to practice the law but you will be ready to do nearly anything you want in the business and political world.  Read more…
