Program Description

Program Description

Our LL.B. program (in Hebrew) is highly regarded, and considered the leading undergraduate law degree in the country. Taught by renowned professors and lecturers, the program offers students the opportunity to obtain an excellent legal education in order to become successful, sophisticated and responsible lawyers.

 

The duration of studies is three-and-a-half years (a total of seven semesters), followed by a one year articled clerkship.

 

The program comprises a total of 141 credits, which are divided into three main categories of courses:

 

Mandatory Courses

Taught during the first year, the compulsory courses aim to establish the foundations of legal thought and doctrine. These include, among others, the basics of private law (contracts and torts), criminal law, constitutional law, jurisprudence, and courses in legal theory/methodology.

 

Legal Doctrine Courses

The program's curriculum offers students many courses designed to provide students with the doctrinal knowledge and understanding that will enable them to specialize in a specific field of law. Among the fields covered are property law, administrative law, corporate law, tax law, labor law, family law, evidence, intellectual property, civil and criminal procedure, international law and more.

 

Elective Courses and Seminars

The remainder of the program includes seminars, workshops, law clinics and elective courses that address a wide range of topics. During their studies, students may choose from over 200 courses and must complete at least one pro-seminar and one research seminar in their chosen field of concentration.

 

Interdisciplinary Undergraduate Programs

Since 2000, the Faculty enables students to obtain a combined LL.B./B.A. (Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts), from any faculty or department within the university.  The four-year programs are aimed at enhancing students' legal knowledge and understanding in particular areas of interest.

 

Student Exchange Programs

Students in their 3rd or 4th year have an opportunity to participate in the Faculty's Student Exchange Program and study a semester aboard at one of the University's partner institutes.
