Introduction to Law Program
The Introduction to Law Program (Mevo'ot Mishpat) strives to improve primary and high school education by deepening values of democracy and social tolerance, through introducing students to basic legal concepts. Run entirely by TAU Law students through the Faculty's Student Council (Hebrew), the program offers introductory classes to various fields of law in schools and community centers across the country. A total of 20-30 TAU Law students are involved in the program each year.
The courses are provided free of charge and include a mixture of lectures and active learning through discussions, roleplaying, simulations, and trips to a courthouse, and to the TAU campus. At the end of the year, pupils in the program partake in a mock trial.
Over the years, TAU Law students’ participation in the program has become increasingly selective. Students wishing to serve as instructors must demonstrate both high academic achievement and social skills, as well as a deep commitment to give back to their community.
