Speak to TAU LLM students!

Application Information



Applicants must have completed an undergraduate degree in law (LL.B., JD, LL.L.) from outside Israel prior to starting the LL.M. degree. Students in their final year of undergraduate law degree studies may apply and will be accepted on the condition they finish their first degree in good standing (above 80/100).


Former TAU Law Exchange Students are encouraged to apply! Should you have studied at TAU Law or at your home university and have taken a course, seminar, or workshop within the past 5 years that –

  • was taught in English
  • was not included in the final count of the required credits towards your LL.B./JD or LL.M. 
  • was either studied towards an LL.M or could qualify towards an LL.M at your home institution (for example, a course with both undergraduate and graduate students), and
  • your grade in such was 80+ (pass/ fail courses will not qualify)

then we are happy to consider up to 6 credits of qualifying courses towards your LL.M degree at TAU. Tuition will be reduced accordingly.


About the Program:

Our Program follows the American model, where several courses will be uniquely offered to the LL.M. class, while other courses tailored for the Masters' and PH.D. students are also opened to LL.B students. This approach ensures a diverse and enriching learning experience for all participants.


Law professors from TAU Law and prestigious international law schools teach almost 50 courses, workshops and seminars entirely in English. These classes are designed to explore contemporary challenges to law stemming from processes of globalization, the Israeli legal and social systems, the complexities of the Middle East region and the technological and entrepreneurial dynamism of the "Start-up Nation."


Students may pursue a general course of study, or may choose to concentrate their courses in one of the following areas:
