RCD’s Ignasi Costas Invited to Join Harvard Law School Center on the Legal Profession Advisory Board
CLP aims to deepen the understanding of the ever-evolving global legal profession through research, teaching, and relationship-building and explores highly-pertinent issues ranging from globalization to diversity to legal education
The Harvard Law School Center on the Legal Profession (CLP) has asked Ignasi Costas, one of the firm’s founders, senior partner and Head of the Innovation and Entrepreneurship practice, to serve on the CLP Advisory Board, making him the first Spanish lawyer to achieve this, and he now becomes part of a select group of leading practitioners from around the world.
Harvard Law School’s CLP is widely recognized as the world’s leading academic research center on the evolution of the global legal profession. The main goal of Harvard’s CLP is to act as a think tank on legal issues, taking into consideration the ever-evolving framework of the legal profession. To do so, the organization uniquely combines research, teaching and relationship-building to address the key challenges facing the legal sector, on topics such as globalization, diversity or legal education.
Becoming the first Spanish firm to have one of its professionals sitting on the CLP advisory board continues the trend of firsts for RCD, which among other achievements includes creating the first legal practice area in Spain fully focused on innovative and entrepreneurial projects back in 2003, led by Ignasi. Thanks to this track record, Ignasi has recently been shortlisted as one of the Top 10 Spanish Lawyers for the 4th Expansión Jurídico Awards, organized by the prestigious economic newspaper Expansión.
