Journalist: Mr. Cancino, you have gained notoriety for your excellent handling of legal proceedings and your ability to communicate clearly and understandably with the media. How did you develop these skills?

Iván Cancino: Well, first of all, thank you for the invitation. To answer your question, I think it’s essential to understand that the legal profession isn’t just about knowledge of the law. Lawyers must be able to communicate effectively with their clients, colleagues, judges, and the media. In my case, I have always been interested in improving my communication skills, and I have studied and practiced a lot to achieve it.

Journalist: You have mentioned that you see your clients as allies. Can you tell us more about your relationship with them?

Iván Cancino: Of course. When I take on a case, I’m not just representing a client; I’m building a relationship with them. I make sure to thoroughly study their case, listen to their concerns, and work with them to develop a defense strategy that fits their particular circumstances. I also charge a fair and previously agreed-upon fee, without pressuring or abusing my clients in any way.

Journalist: You also teach at various universities. How do you balance your time between teaching and your legal practice?

Iván Cancino: Yes, I teach undergraduate classes at UNICIENCIA DE BUCARAMANGA and graduate classes both in Colombia and abroad. I believe that teaching is a way of sharing my knowledge and experience with future generations of lawyers. As for balancing my time, it’s not always easy, but I prioritize and schedule my commitments to ensure that I can fulfill my obligations to both my clients and my students.

Journalist: You are also known for your reels and TikToks. Can you tell us more about this strategy?

Iván Cancino: Yes, I use social media to communicate with the public and share my perspective on current legal issues. They are short videos that summarize my opinion on a particular topic. I believe it’s important to communicate with the public and give them a better understanding of the legal system. I also use this strategy to create my own agenda and avoid uncomfortable questions from the media.

Journalist: What advice would you give to young lawyers who want to make a difference in the legal profession?

Ivan Cancino: I would tell them to work hard, study a lot, and never stop learning. Communication skills are essential, but so are empathy and commitment to their clients. Always prioritize their clients’ interests over their own, and make sure to charge a fair and agreed-upon fee in advance. Finally, remember that the legal profession isn’t just about winning cases; it’s about serving justice and having a positive impact on people’s lives.

Journalist: Thank you very much for your time, Mr. Cancino.

Ivan Cancino: Thank you for the opportunity.
