Hugo Grotius, discussed at IE University

Written on November 28, 2013 by Roberto Arribas in Law, Lectures

5 Tammo Wallinga 28 11 13Tammo Wallinga, Professor of Legal History at the Erasmus University Rotterdam (Netherlands) and the University of Antwerp (Belgium), delivered today a conference in the Segovia campus of IE University under the title “Grotius: Reshaping the Law of Obligations.” 

In the conference, Professor Wallinga explained how the humanist and natural law trends of the 16th and 17th centuries influenced the systematization of private law, in particular through the contributions of the great Dutch jurist Hugo Grotius (1583-1645), which would deeply affect the manner in which law would be conceived in Europe from that moment until today. 

Professor Wallinga was introduced by Marco de Benito, Professor of Legal History at IE University, with Bart Wauters, also Professor of Legal History at IE University, acting as discussant. 

The conference was held under the auspices of the European Module “Towards a Common Private Law of Europe,” an IE University undertaking within the prestigious Jean Monnet Programme of the European Commission. Headed by Professor Marco de Benito, the Module aims at helping students, scholars, and lawyers develop a more global and comparative understanding of the law.

Tammo Wallinga, Profesor de Historia del Derecho en las Universidades Erasmus de Rotterdam (Holanda) y Amberes (Bélgica), dio hoy una conferencia en el campus de Segovia de IE University con el título “Grotius: Reshaping the Law of Obligations.”

El Profesor Wallinga explicó cómo los paradigmas humanistas e iusnaturalistas de los siglos 16th y 17th influyeron en la sistematización del Derecho privado, especialmente a través del gran jurista holandés Hugo Grocio (1583-1645). Las contribuciones de Grocio marcaron fuertemente el modo de concebir la ciencia jurídica en Europa, llegando su influencia hasta nuestros días.

El ponente fue presentado por Marco de Benito, y Bart Wauters fungió como discussant. Ambos son Profesores de Historia del Derecho en IE University.

La conferencia tuvo lugar en el marco del Módulo Europeo “Hacia un Derecho privado común para Europa”, un proyecto de IE University dentro del prestigioso Programa Jean Monnet de la Comisión Europea. Dirigido por el Profesor Marco de Benito, el objetivo del Módulo es contribuir a una visión del Derecho más global y comparada, no sólo entre los alumnos sino en la comunidad jurídica, académica y profesional.

Lecture: Copyright and Cultural Institutions

Written on June 7, 2013 by Roberto Arribas in Law, Lectures

pedro-letaiNext monday the Pedro Letai´s seminar, Copyright and Cultural Institutions,  will be take place at Casa de La Moneda from 12:00 to 13:00.

Digital communications technologies have led to fundamental changes in the ways that cultural institutions fulfill their public missions of access, preservation, research, and education. Institutions are developing publicly-accessible websites in which users can visit online exhibitions, search collection databases, access images of collection items, and in some cases create their own digital content. Digitization, however, also raises the possibility of copyright infringement. This lecture aims to assist understanding and compliance with copyright law across cultural institutions. We will discuss the exclusive rights of the copyright owner, the major exemptions used by cultural heritage institutions, and stresses the importance of “risk assessment” when conducting any digitization project.

Prof. Pedro Letai is an expert in copyrigth issues, social networks and google. So, feel free to ask him your doubts and queries.

Seven second-year students from IE University’s Bachelor of Laws program have had the opportunity to become lawyers for a week at Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira. The experience was made possible thanks to the Young Talent program, a pioneering initiative that consists of immersing students in corporate lawyering by placing them in direct contact with the day-to-day of a law firm. 

The students, all of whom have excellent academic potential, were accompanied at all times by lawyers from different areas of legal expertise. These tutors explained the way things worked and the demands of lawyering at a top-tier firm.  

The immersion program also includes special sessions to instruct the students on how to map a career path in law, the differences between the different areas of practice (mercantile, fiscal, litigation and labor) and the international dimension of the profession. The intense week was rounded off with practical seminars designed to help students optimize their law studies at IE University and develop the skill set they need to become an excellent lawyer.

According to Federico Roig, a partner at Cuatrecasas, Mercantile law expert, and IE Law School professor, the program is a unique opportunity to show students what life as a lawyer in a multinational law firm is like. “Here they can find out what kind of profile they need if they want to work with us in the future. They have spent a week in a front-row seat onto the work environment in a law firm, and the challenges and demands of the day-to-day of a corporate lawyer.”

Siete estudiantes de IE University, abogados de Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira por una semana

Siete estudiantes de segundo curso del Grado en Derecho de  IE University se han convertido en abogados de Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira durante toda una semana. Lo han hecho gracias al Programa de Jóvenes Talentos: una experiencia pionera de inmersión en la abogacía de los negocios que les ha puesto en contacto directo con la realidad del día a día de la firma. 

Los alumnos, todos con un potencial académico excelente, han estado acompañados en todo momento por abogados de las distintas áreas de práctica. Estos tutores les han explicado las rutinas y las exigencias del ejercicio de la abogacía en un despacho de primer nivel. 

Además, el programa de inmersión se ha reforzado con sesiones especiales para que entiendan cómo funciona la carrera profesional, las diferencias entre las distintas áreas de práctica (mercantil, fiscal, contencioso y laboral) o la proyección internacional de la profesión. La intensa semana ha finalizado con seminarios prácticos para que los estudiantes optimicen sus estudios de Derecho en IE University y desarrollen todas las habilidades necesarias para ser un abogado excelente. 

Según Federico Roig, socio de Mercantil y profesor en IE Law School, el programa es una “oportunidad única para enseñarles la vida de un abogado en un despacho multidisciplinar y aprender  el perfil idóneo  para incorporarse con nosotros en el futuro. Durante una semana han sido testigos de excepción del ambiente de trabajo del despacho y de los retos y  exigencias de los abogados de empresa en nuestro quehacer diario”. 

Soledad Atienza, directora del Grado en Derecho de la IE University destaca que “esta actividad refuerza la formación orientada a la práctica profesional de la abogacía en un entorno global que ofrece nuestro grado en Derecho y representa una experiencia magnífica para nuestros alumnos que viven la abogacía durante una semana con el apoyo de abogados de primer nivel.” 

Los alumnos participantes han sido Antonio Gálvez, Jaime J. Rodríguez, Daniel Andressen, Charlotte Barré, Alexia Andress, Álvaro Vidal y Julia Torres. A pesar de su juventud, todos han demostrado con creces madurez, ambición de logro e iniciativa. Potencial válido no sólo para una semana en Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira, sino para toda una carrera profesional de éxito.
