The Program

The IE LLM program is listed among the best in the world and is best defined by two factors:

1. A clinical approach, and
2. A focus on the practice of law in the context of business.

All graduate programs in law start from the same premise, i.e. that merely 'knowing the law' is not enough for success in the practice of law. IE's teaching method reflects this premise via its focus on "active learning".

"Active learning" takes place through individual and group work on hypothetical cases based on faculty members' real world experiences. Individuals and groups work to solve these real-world hypotheticals.
