IE Law School and Pérez-Llorca have presented the Global Legal Thinkers programme, designed ad hoc for senior lawyers and new partners (both incorporations and promotions) of the law firm. The programme will include leadership and management sessions taught by Harvard Law School Executive Education.
Global Legal Thinkers will consist of sessions integrated into Pérez-Llorca’s training calendar, starting in February 2022 and ending in June 2022. The programme will be delivered jointly at IE University (IE Tower) and Pérez-Llorca in Madrid, as well as through live online sessions. This training will cover areas such as innovation, leadership, new business models and global socio-economic trends and aims to provide Pérez-Llorca’s professionals with the necessary tools to develop their careers and improve their technical and leadership skills from an external, client-focused and internal perspective, seeking the best management of their teams for their development.
Global Legal Thinkers is a programme taught in English that combines an online and face-to-face format. The programme will offer disruptive, transformative, experiential and innovative content, including interactive sessions and the use of case studies to showcase ground-breaking research. It is composed of two parts: one on economic, political and social macro-trends, and one on leadership and innovation. The combination of these two parts will provide Pérez-Llorca professionals with the context, knowledge and tools to successfully lead the complex challenges facing the legal profession in a global context.
Scott Westfahl, director of Harvard Law School Executive Education, said: “Our school is delighted to deliver a leadership module within the Global Legal Thinkers programme to help guide the firm’s senior associates and junior and senior partners through the increasingly complex tasks and challenges facing the legal profession today. Our immersive sessions are designed to build leadership skills and strategies, share academic research, provide the knowledge to navigate the current environment and build a continuous learning networking network among participants.”
Constanza Vergara Jaakkola, partner and Corporate director of Pérez-Llorca, added: “This programme brings together two of the best law schools in the world, IE Law School and Harvard Law School Executive Education, in order to provide our professionals with unique training in Spain framed in the social and macroeconomic trends that surround us. It has always been clear to us that training is a basic pillar for professional and human development, which is why we have created this programme as a platform on which to build the knowledge and skills of our professionals.”
“It is an honour for us to work together with Harvard Law School Executive Education and the Pérez-Llorca law firm. The programme’s mission is to train senior lawyers, counsels and young partners at Pérez-Llorca to have a positive impact on society through the practice of Law. With these types of alliances and corporate training programmes, IE Law School reinforces its commitment to collaborate with academics and business leaders around the world. We are responding to the global needs of lawyers in today’s disruptive and constantly changing environment,” said Soledad Atienza, Dean of IE Law School at IE University.
