Law without Walls 2014

Written on April 29, 2014 by Roberto Arribas in Business, Law

BlIoKl7IUAA6I1zLawWithoutWalls 2014 Conposium was held on the 12 and 13 of April at the University of Miami School of Law in Coral Gables, Florida, where a number of legal technology projects were presented by students from the best universities all over the World. IE was represented in Miami by Ana Martínez Valls and Wojciech Zaluska, both students fron the Dual LLB+BBA Degree, who presented their final projects in front of several leaders of the legal community.

LawWithoutWalls is a part-virtual collaboratory course that develops the skills necessary to provide effective legal services in today’s global, multi-disciplinary, and cross-cultural marketplace. It centers on the intersection of law, business, technology and innovation. This award-winning course is pioneered by University of Miami School of Law and taught in conjunction with leading law schools across the globe including UCL Laws, Harvard Law School, Stanford Law School, Fordham Law School, New York Law School, Peking University (STL), University of St Gallen and University of Sydney.

The course explores innovations in global legal education and practice through weekly virtual classes and collaborative research. Students attended and participated in virtual classroom sessions and were grouped with students from other participating law schools to conduct a piece of research on an assigned topic. The topics were interdisciplinary and wide-ranging, looking to the future in their anticipation of changes to legal practice and education within a virtual landscape.

Students engaged during the course with leading practitioners and mentors from across the globe through weekly virtual mentoring sessions. Central to the course is the idea that students should engage with one another in person as well as virtually.  To that end, a Kick Off event was held at University of St Gallen in Switzerland last January for students and mentors to meet and prepare for the course.

This year, IE University also offered a second LawWithoutWalls program, “LWOW X”, in which our Dual Degree student Eric Cuevas took part. LWOW X is an all-virtual pilot program that offers the same components and benefits as LWOW, but makes use of technology to configure the program on an entirely on-line basis. In doing so, LWOW X seeks to make the benefits of LWOW available to a greater number of students. The universities that participated in the pilot were UCL, University of Montreal, Miami Law and IE University.


IE University will be on the spotlight again on Going Global, the international British Council Conference that will gather more than a thousand representatives from universities all over the world, on Miami from April 29th to May 1st

Going-GlobalAmong the speakers, we may find the General Director for International Relations for IE, María Eugenia Marín, which will participate on the panel of “EMI: lessons for and from Latin America“,. There, she will explain IE University’s bet for English as lingua franca for higher education. In this panel, moderated by John Knagg, British Council’s Senior Advisor, will talk too Joaquín Guerra, the Vice-Rector of TEC Monterrey, and a professor from UNICAMP, Brazil.

Going Global is a series of education international conferences organized by the British Council. They offer a place to debate the latest trends in higher education for policy makers and experts from all over the world. From 2004, Going Global has transformed from a biannual event on the UK to an annual conference alternating its location from Britain to other countries each two years. Each year a thousand delegates from all higher education sectors will participate, offering a view from all the institutions and organizations with perspectives on international education.

This collaboration with the Going Global Miami conference is framed in the partnership that IE University and the British Council have shared for other events such as the conference “The Role of English in Higher Education: Issues, Policy and Practice”, celebrated last November in Segovia; and the involvement of professors María Eugenia Marín and Adriana Ángel on the EMI Oxford launch, the Centre for Research and Development on English as Medium of Instruction, by the Oxford University.

Esta colaboración en la edición de Going Global en Miami se enmarca dentro de la estrecha relación que mantienen IE University y el British Council. Entre esas actividades conjuntas figuran la conferencia celebrada en noviembre del año pasado en Segovia titualda “The Role of English in Higher Education: Issues, Policy and Practice” y la participación el pasado mes de marzo de las profesoras María Eugenia Marín y Adriana Ángel en el launch en Oxford University del EMI Oxford: the Centre for Research and Development on English as Medium of Instruction
