Become an International Lawyer

The College of Law and Business offers a global LL.B (Bachelor of Law) degree in Israel for English and Hebrew Speakers. This 3.5-year program is an amazing opportunity for students who are looking to gain international experience and prepare themselves professionally for a successful career in law. Students live in Israel, study in both English and Hebrew and get the support they need to practice law in both languages, including Judicial Hebrew language classes in the first year and academic adjustments.

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 contingent on strong international ties 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 highly sought after by corporate 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 from 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.
From the second year, students choose to focus on one of four majors within the law degree program:
  • Hi-Tech and Venture Capital Law
  • Criminal Law
  • Human Rights
  • Business and Commercial Law
