About the IE Law Review
Founded in 2023, the ELSA IE University Law Review is the largest and oldest legal journal at IE University. Managed by the undergraduate community of IE, we are dedicated to facilitating critical discussion of contemporary legal issues and providing an accessible forum of legal discourse. Join us to explore the latest legal developments, engage in insightful conversations, and contribute to the advancement of legal knowledge. Together, let's shape the future of law.
The ELSA IE Law Review ("IE Law Review") was founded by Mr. Jorge Sanjuán Femenía in 2023, 6 months after the inauguration of ELSA International and ELSA Spain's IE University subchapter. The first of its kind at the institution, the ILR was and continues to be, in more ways than one, a pioneering society. As the first English-based student-led law review in the Kingdom of Spain, the IE Law Review distinguished itself from its inception within a crowded landscape of academic publications, presenting an innovative approach tailored to an audience that had not yet been fully explored.
It wasn't long before the ILR found its first sponsor, (...), who has generously supported our endeavors ever since.
The IE Law Review was and continues to be a subsidiary of IE University's subchapter at the European Law Students' Association, and, as such, is made up exclusively of ELSA IE University members, all of whom belong to the undergraduate body of IE University. Throughout its various Issues and Volumes, the ELSA IE Law Review has maintained its commitment to honoring our parent associations, together with their apolitical nature.
The IE Law Review is committed to a twofold mission, aiming to exert a profound influence on the legal realm, and to cultivate the next generation of legal luminaries. Our dedication extends beyond the traditional boundaries of academic publishing, as we strive to elevate innovative ideas and embrace a diverse range of perspectives within the expansive landscape of law.
At the heart of our mission lies the nurturing of exceptional legal minds and professionals. Our Editorial Board plays a pivotal role in this endeavor, actively engaging in the rigorous evaluation of submissions, refining their editing prowess, and enriching our authors' research and writing skills. This holistic approach not only enhances the quality of our published content but also empowers our members with invaluable expertise.
Diversity stands as a fundamental pillar of our commitment. We firmly believe that the legal sphere should reflect the kaleidoscope of ideas, identities, and viewpoints that characterize society. This ethos has been woven into our fabric since our inception, with a commitment to promoting inclusivity and representing a spectrum of backgrounds and perspectives.
As part of our commitment to pushing the boundaries of legal scholarship, we actively explore emerging fields of study within the legal domain. This entails a continuous quest to challenge established norms and delve into emerging legal phenomena, enriching the collective knowledge of the legal community. To do this, our writers and editors work under Seneca the Younger's principle of "mutata lex non perit", which underscores the enduring relevance of legal evolution. This guiding maxim inspires our ongoing commitment to adapting and growing with the ever-evolving legal landscape.
