Cuatrecasas Challenge selects 16 students for its 2nd edition

Cuatrecasas Challenge has selected the 16 law students, this time from twelve different spanish universities, who will take part in its second edition. During this national competition in the field of business law, participants will have to solve a practical case in pairs before a panel of judges made up of partners from the firm.

The case study will be divided into two phases: a written phase to be presented on 31 January and, subsequently, an oral phase to be held on 23 february in person.

Registration for this second call, which opened last september, has received sixty applications from students in the final year of their degree or double degree in law, from twenty-one public and private universities.

The panel of judges for this second edition of the Cuatrecasas Challenge is made up of four partners: Fedra Valencia (Restructuring, Insolvency and Special Situations), Meritxell Yus (Indirect taxation and Real Estate and Urban Planning), Almudena Batista (Labor and Employment) and Miguel Sánchez Monjo (Financial and Insurance Services and Funds).

The competition will end on 23 february with the selection of a winning pair and a semi-finalist pair. Each of them will receive a grant for the master’s degree in access to the legal profession or double master’s degree with specialization, as well as the opportunity to complete the internship for the master’s degree in their area of preference at Cuatrecasas.
