The International Pathways brings to you the collaboration for 2021. IFIM Law School entered a Memorandum of Understanding with Texas A&M University School of Law, USA. This collaboration will offer new and exciting opportunities to students from thousands of miles away, right here at IFIM Law School! But we are not going to stop here.

IFIM’s International Collaboration with ISDE Law and Business School, Spain!

It is the start of a new academic phase, students will now get the opportunity to go for foreign exchange programs and get global exposure. We aim to start the dual degree program BBA.LLB. and LL.M with ISDE. Even IFIM students aspiring to pursue masters programs abroad will get the tuition fees waiver in ISDE.

ISDE-IFIM Exchange Program

ISDE Law and Business School is an educational institution born from the heart of the advocacy. In 1992, representatives of the main national and international law firms met to take the decision to create an academic institution focused on legal education at the highest level. A student exchange program was undertaken between IFIM and ISDE. Learners were exposed to the European Legal System and Competition Law nuances.

The program was aimed to allow students to explore business considerations within a broader perspective by including inputs from leading law practitioners in the field. More specifically, the program explained how to compete on the internal market and protect your brand. It included legal disciplines such as Competition Law and specific branches within Public Law such as public procurement and state aid. It also gave insight into EU Institutions, treaties, and their role & impact on global market. It helped the students in better understanding of the concept on abuse of dominance, merger contract prevailing in EU. Thus, developing the student’s comparative legal understanding.

International Internship

IFIM School of Law provides a global platform for students to secure international internship opportunities. In the competitive state of today’s job market, having global work experience under your belt is one of the best things you can do for your prospective career. Inter-cultural communication and global work experience is a vital part of the modern professional world. Interning abroad is about learning beyond local work exposure. When you leave the comforts of your home and immerse yourself in a totally new environment, you broaden your horizons and learn to adapt to a multicultural environment. This global experience will pay off enormously during the final job placement. While the developmental rewards of interning abroad are insurmountable, the ultimate goal of an internship abroad is to help you in obtaining a job in your field of choice in the future. Your international internship experience will illustrate that you are passionate, driven, and not afraid to step outside your comfort zone as all the qualities will take you far in the professional world. IFIM also has a tie up with AIESEC to enhance international internship opportunities for students.
