Written on May 19, 2014 by Roberto Arribas in Law

Ana Martínez-Valls and Wojtek Zaluzka, IEU Business and Law Students, have recently pitched new business ideas at the Miami Law School. One of them was successfully awarded a second place in the contest.

LWOW1LawWithoutWalls (LWOW) is a project founded in Miami Law School by Harvard Professor Michele DeStephano. Students from 25 law and business schools from 14 different countries participate in the contest. Coming from Stanford, Harvard Sciences Po, McGill, IEU and several other universities, students subscribe to a 3-month online course taught by today’s most prestigious law, entrepreneur and academic mentors. The learning’s of such courses are materialized into a final project that is presented by a three-student group related to innovation on the field of law.

“Venture Capitalists have emailed us expressing their interest on our project. LWOW provided us with the opportunity to meet with people from all over the world who go to the best law schools while granting you exposure to Venture Capitalists, future investors and experts on the field. This can open doors for you in the professional world and also provides your projects with great feedback”. (Ana Martinez Valls)

In this case, Ana and her team members (all of which came from different Universities and cultural backgrounds) developed an App designed to help lawyers and student improve their negotiation skills as their final project. They were awarded the second position in the contest!

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.
