Fast Track to the Global Market

In Israel, bilingual lawyers are in high demand. Well known as the “Start-up Nation”, Israel boasts more R&D investment and start-ups per capita than any other country. Yet with a population of only 8 million people, a majority of a business survival and success are contending on strong international treaties in the form of exports, international patents and trade agreements. Jurists that can operate within both the Hebrew speaking world of technology and business and the world of international law, patents and contracts, are highlyought after corporation and international law firms.

If practicing law in the USA is your goal, CLB’s LL.B (Bachelor of Law) program qualifies you to take the New York State bar. Additionally, dedicated students can earn a fast-track Masters of Law (LL.M.) from Chicago Kent College of Law or Cardozo Law School at Yeshiva University by studying the final year in Chicago or New York. Studying in Israel allows you to cut down the financial burden and the time towards an American law graduate degree down to only four years.

Introduction to Legal Philosophy
The course addresses some of the central aspects of the role of law in modern society. It starts by an inquiry into the nature of law itself, and discusses the possibility to think about law as a rational system of rules; it then moves to discuss the sources of law and the debate between positivism and non-positivism. This is followed by an inquiry into the nature of related concepts, such as morality and justice, and especially into the relationship between these concepts and the concept of law.
