Carlos has been teaching at RGSL for over 10 years. He teaches Comparative Contract & Commercial Law for Masters students, and International Commercial Law for Bachelor students.
Where do you come from?
I am a Spanish national, with strong family ties in Madrid (my birthplace), the Basque Country and Italy and very good friends all around the world, including Latvia. One may say I am a happy global by-product of an already lost open and free world.
What is the main thing the students should take from your course?
International business transactions are a legal puzzle where students need to learn the appropriate method to put all the pieces together.
Your authority/role model in your professional field?
I am an iconoclast. I do not believe in role models by name (or, as they call them now, influencers). My role models are all those hard-working, good-hearted, open-minded, ground-breaking, frequently anonymous, professionals who really make a difference and contribute to make this world a better one.
A must-read book in your field?
European Private International Law (Granada 2022), edited by two exceptionally-gifted and highly-praised PIL Spanish professors, Alfonso-Luis Calvo Caravaca and Javier Carrascosa González, who happen to be very good friends of mine.
The one fun thing you want our students to know about you?
I am an extremely serious funny person.
