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.


During the week of April 7-12, four undergraduate students and their advisor will be representing IE University at the annual Global Business Case Competition. The competition will take place at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA, USA. The GBCC has been taking place since 1999, and is recognised as one of the most challenging and respected case competitions worldwide. Ten other universities from five different continents will also be sending their representative teams, including Concordia University, the University of Melbourne and the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

The competition, sponsored by large multinationals such as The Boeing Company and Starbucks Coffee International, will give students the opportunity to meet new people, build relationships, and participate in a real-life case study and prepare a business recommendation. During the 48-hour case cracking period, the teams will not be allowed to contact with their advisor or with other teams, testing their ability to work under pressure and deliver a sustainable solution.

The team comprises of two 3rd year BBA students, Louis De Clercq and Ola Kvalheim, and two 4th year BBA students, Joséphine Kant and Serena Mujtaba. They will be supported by their case advisor, Sondos Abdelgawad, who is an Entrepreneurship professor at the University. The team has been preparing hard by reviewing past year’s cases and developing case analysis frameworks, but they will not find out the subject of this year’s case until the live kick-off on April 10th. This year’s competition will prove to be as challenging as the previous ones.

On April 12th the teams will present their case solution to a panel of five corporate judges, who will evaluate their recommendations. Four finalists will be chosen to move on to the final round presentation, competing for the prestigious GBCC Trophy. Previous champions include Concordia University and the University of Hong Kong. We wish the best of luck to the IE University team!

hult prize 2

Undergraduate students from IE University among the top 4 of the Hult Prize, Dubai

  • Four bachelor students of IE University were the only undergraduate students competing against experts with MBAs, Phds and Master’s degrees.

An IE University Team comprising students Stefan Wolf Staertzel, Victor Berthon, Pablo Otero and Carlos Beltrán, won a spot among the top 4 in the regional finals of the prestigious Hult Prize, the planet’s largest student competition in the field of social entrepreneurship, with a million dollar prize. IE students were the only graduates competing against more experienced candidates with PhDs, MBAs and a range of master’s degrees. They were also the only students under 22 in a final round in which the average age was 30 years old.

The Hult Prize, which received a record number of more than 10,000 first-round applicants, was created by Hult and Clinton Global Initiative to boost the development of social start-ups in the healthcare industry. This year entrants were required to focus on “Non-communicable Disease in the Urban Slum”, and more than 250 teams competed against each other in six regional finals in the cities of Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, Shanghai and Sao Paulo.

The members of the IE University Team were from France, Germany, Venezuela and Spain, and aged 20 and under. They were also the only team in which all the members were from a business course. The four students met in the Bachelor in Business Administration program at the Spanish university and presented their project for the Dubai Final.

They won the first two rounds with “Cuidado Verde”, a project aimed at helping the 92% of slum-dwellers in Peru who do not receive a timely diagnosis for chronic diseases. In order to do this the team came up with a simple but innovative idea: a business that recycles the uncollected trash generated by the area to fund a free full annual check-up for its inhabitants.

“I think the Hult Prize was one of my greatest achievements so far in my life!” says Victor Berthon, team captain. “Being the youngest and the only team comprised of undergraduate students it was already a huge achievement to get to the finals, but ending up in the top 4 exceeded our expectations and showed that no matter how small we are, we can create an impact.”

Alumnos de grado de IE University, en el Top 4 del Hult Prize en Dubai

Los cuatro alumnos de Grado de IE University fueron los únicos participantes universitarios que compitieron junto a expertos con doctorados, MBAs o Másters

IEUniversityTeam_HultPrizeEl equipo formado por los alumnos de IE University Stefan Wolf Staertzel, Victor Berthon, Pablo Otero y Carlos Beltrán se clasificó dentro del TOP 4 de la final regional de Dubai del prestigioso Premio Hult, la mayor competición para estudiantes con proyectos emprendedores con un fin benéfico, y dotado con un premio de un millón de dólares. Los alumnos de IE fueron los únicos universitarios en esta competición en la que participaron junto a expertos con doctorados, MBAs o Másters. De esta manera, los estudiantes de IE University fueron los únicos menores de 22 años en una final cuya edad media se acercaba a los 30 años.

El Premio Hult, al que se presentan más de diez mil alumnos de todo el mundo, es una iniciativa de Hult y Clinton Global Initiative para fomentar el desarrollo de proyectos emprendedores sociales en el ámbito de la salud. Este año, bajo el tema “Prevención de enfermedades no transmisibles en suburbios urbanos”, más de doscientos cincuenta equipos se enfrentaron en seis finales que se desarrollaron en Boston, San Francisco, Londres, Dubai, Shanghai y Sao Paulo.

El grupo de IE University, compuesto por un francés, un alemán, un venezolano y un español, con apenas 19 y 20 años de edad, era el único además en el que todos los integrantes eran de económicas. Estos cuatro jóvenes se conocieron estudiando el grado de Administración de Empresas en la universidad española, y postularon su candidatura para la final de Dubai.

El equipo de IE University ganó las dos rondas previas con su proyecto “Cuidado Verde”, con el que se pretende buscar una solución a la falta de diagnóstico de enfermedades crónicas en Perú, país donde un 92% de su población padece enfermedades sin diagnosticar, un problema que se intensifica en los barrios más pobres.

Se trata de una idea sencilla pero ingeniosa: a través del dinero recaudado con la recogida y reciclaje de desperdicios se ofrece un chequeo completo anual gratuito a los habitantes del suburbio.

“Creo que haber sido finalistas en el Premio Hult ha sido uno de los mayores logros de mi vida”, asegura Victor Berthon, el capitán del equipo. “Llegar a la final con el equipo más joven, y el único en el que no hay nadie graduado todavía ya es todo un éxito; quedar entre los cuatro mejores superó todas nuestras expectativas. Demostró que puedes cambiar las cosas y que para ello no importa lo joven que seas”, añade.
