Ilan is a corporate lawyer at one of the top law firms in the US. He is certified to practice law both in Israel and in the State of New York. After graduating from Tel Aviv University Buchmann Law Faculty, where he obtained both an LL.B. and an LL.M. degree magna cum laude, through the accelerated LL.M. program, Ilan clerked at the Supreme Court of Israel and worked as an associate in the international transactions group in Erdinast, Ben Nathan & Co. Advocates, one of Israel’s leading law firms. He recently graduated from Harvard Law School, obtaining an LL.M. degree.
Ilan finds his experience at Tel Aviv University Faculty of Law both significant and influential. He firmly believes that the tools students obtain during their studies are priceless: “at TAU Law, one starts to develop critical and analytical thinking from day one. Students don’t only get to study the most exciting legal ideas from leading scholars, but are also strongly encouraged to challenge those ideas."
Ilan also points out the variety of extracurricular activities available to students at the law school. For instance, Ilan edited two law journals and worked as a research assistant for several professors. “Such involvement creates a unique opportunity for students to take part in
the cutting-edge research conducted by faculty members, and significantly enriches their academic experience”, he says. The law school also provides students with endless opportunities to contribute to society while using their newly acquired knowledge. During his studies at the Faculty, Ilan volunteered in various teaching and tutoring projects designed to strengthen and empower children, teenagers and university students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
