The two institutions have joined forces to launch the IE White & Case End of Degree Prize, a pioneering initiative aimed at promoting education programs for the professional and international practice of future lawyers.

The winner will receive a scholarship funded jointly by the IE Foundation and White & Case to study a postgraduate program at IE Law School. 

Alumnos de IE University en grupos de trabajoWhite & Case, one of the world’s top law firms in terms of services provided and turnover, and IE University, one of the most prestigious institutions worldwide for university studies, have signed an agreement to create the first “IE White & Case End of Degree Prize”. The prize is the result of a joint commitment of both institutions to foster talent among future law graduates.

This first edition of the IE White & Case End of Degree Prize takes the form of a competition aimed at students in their last year of IE University’s Bachelor of Laws program, with a prize for the best end of degree project.  The winner will receive a scholarship, sponsored jointly by the IE Foundation and White & Case, covering 55% of tuition fees of one of the postgraduate programs run by IE Law School. There are currently some 200 students from 39 countries studying IE University’s Bachelor of Law who will be eligible for the prize on completion of their studies.

Candidates for the current edition of the prize must send their end of degree project before May 31, 2015, to be considered by a judges’ panel comprised of members of IE and White & Case who will evaluate levels of academic excellence of the entries.

“It is a privilege for us to enjoy the support of a prestigious law firm like White & Case to offer a prize that reflects the interest that both institutions share in education programs with an international focus aimed at corporate law professionals,” said Soledad Atienza, Director of IE University’s Bachelor of Law Program.

The initiative, which is coordinated by White & Case’s Madrid office forms part of a drive to promote education programs focused on the professional and international practice of future lawyers. Outside Spain the firm has signed similar agreements, including one between its London Office and Cass Business School to sponsor a Mergers and Acquisitions Research Centre (MARC).

Juan Manuel de Remedios, managing partner of White & Case in Spain, said: “With this prize we aim to help foster talent and a culture of excellence among law students, who are the people who will be leading the legal counsel sector in the near future. The fact that we are doing this jointly with an international institution like IE fits perfectly with White & Case’s global approach to law.”

White & Case opened its office in Spain in March of 2013. Since then it has served as legal advisor in M&A and stock exchange operations with an estimated total value of €16 billion. In March of 2014 it opened its new office in Madrid’s Paseo de la Castellana and now continues to build on its commitment to Spain with the creation of the IE White & Case End of Degree Prize.

IE University is the No. 1 university in Spain, No. 11 in Europe, and No. 29 worldwide in the Global Employability Ranking 2014

The ranking, published today by the International New York Times, gauges the quality of the 150 top universities in the world and the employability of their students

rankingweb14IE University is the No. 1 university in Spain, No. 11 in Europe and No. 29 in the world in the Global Employability Survey and University Ranking 2014 published today by the International New York Times.

The ranking was drawn up by leading consulting firms Emerging (France) and Trendence (Germany) and evaluated how attractive leading universities are for recruiters. Over 2,500 managers and HR experts from 20 countries took part in the survey, providing opinions on key aspects of the university learning experience, including levels of academic excellence in universities, the importance of a practical approach to learning, interpersonal skills, team work, and building the capacity to solve problems and work under pressure. Some 67% of participants underscored the fact that the global profile of a university is a key factor for ensuring graduates’ employability.

IE University climbed 5 positions in the 2014 ranking compared to last year’s results, and has risen 14 positions since 2012. Achieving the No. 29 position means that IE University is now among the top 30 educational establishments in the world when it comes to being appreciated by directors of human resources. The universities of Cambridge, Harvard and Yale are the current overall leaders.

“Universities play a pivotal role in ensuring their students are able to integrate into an increasingly competitive, globalized and intercultural work market,” said Salvador Carmona, Rector of IE University. “The fact that global corporations recognise our commitment to quality and excellence is enormously satisfying.”

The top 30 universities in the ranking comprise 11 US-based universities, 11 based in Europe, 5 in Asia, 2 in Canada, and one in Australia. The top 150 universities include Spain’s University of Navarre at No. 45 and Ramón Llull University at No. 108.

The ranking was based on the opinions of 2,500 managers and HR experts from 20 countries with regard to the best universities in their country, their continent and other world regions. These experts examined parameters such as the quality of different higher education systems, their strong points, and areas where there is room for improvement. They showed a special interest in teaching methodology, available specializations and the level of interaction with other universities and the corporate world during the degree program. One of the main conclusions of the study is that leading universities are striving to reinvent and restructure themselves in order to meet the challenges of a labor market that is in constant change.​
