The Bachelor of Laws trains global lawyers of tomorrow to meet the unique needs of the job market.

These are more than just words. IE University partners up with some of the greatest programs in the world so that students can finish their degrees with a profound knowledge of project management, entrepreneurship, technology, problem-solving, communication, business, networking, and leadership.

As part of the LL.B., students can apply to Law Without Walls: a partially virtual, collaborative, international program. LWOW is a contest in which each student is assigned to a team of international students as well as project mentors. These teams represent the best and brightest students from prestigious international universities, and the body of mentors is made up of innovative lawyers, business professionals, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, and renowned academics.

Teams are presented with a topic and challenged to find an innovative solution. They must work together on a weekly basis to develop a business plan, prototype, and presentation. The final project (a result of weeks of collaboration and hard work) is called Project of Worth. After this online collaboration phase, each group delivers a presentation to a panel of judges in the ConPosium, an event which takes place at the University of Miami.

During the kickoff event, each team meets in person for the first time and spends a weekend filled with intensive teamwork activities, workshops, and conferences. The goal is to identify what the strengths and weaknesses are within each group, given that after this event the team will be collaborating remotely, meeting online at least once per week to develop their projects.

The final objective of the program is to encourage a generation of law professionals able to collaborate on a transnational scale, communicate effectively, cultivate strong relationships with clients, and work with the latest technologies. IE University also focuses on training lawyers that are able to practice law in different countries and have a global mindset that allows them to work in different frameworks.
