Comparative Law in Action Competition - 2nd Edition hosted by ie law school

“Laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths disclosed, and manners and opinions change with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also, and keep pace with the times.” - Thomas Jefferson, 1816
Despite the Covid – 19 pandemic, the first edition of the Comparative Law in Action Challenge was a huge success, welcoming six top universities from across the globe. Participants worked on a cutting-edge multimedia case on Electoral Law and explored the challenges that arise from the use of technology, as well as the regulation of disinformation. The selected teams presented their solutions to a panel of distinguished judges, including the Ambassador of the Netherlands to Spain, the Ambassador of the UK to Spain, the First Counselor of Italy to Spain, and the General Director of Orange Spain. A huge congratulations to Tilburg University – the winner of last year’s challenge!
