Sandra Enzler, ESADE Careers Director - 
Law School

Sandra.enzler@esade.edu

I have managed Career Services at ESADE Law School for 15 years. In that time I have advised and trained more than 1500 students and alumni to help them plan their careers. As director of corporate relations I have maintained direct contact with the legal sector, trying to strengthen ties between the professional world and academia. After graduating in law, I practiced as a lawyer for several years. In parallel, I continued my education by pursuing a Master's degree in community law, doctoral studies, a postgraduate degree in HR and various management programs. My experience and training have allowed me to get to know the legal sector and, as a result, to educate and advise our students towards career success and to guide firms to fulfil their recruitment needs.
