Israel and International Law Program

Registration for the 2017 program is now open! See “Registration” below for more information on how to register.
Note: Registration has been extended to February 17, 2017. Please see the updated registration guide below. University of Ottawa students have until March 3 to register.
This three week program is an academic partnership between the University of Manitoba law school and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. This course is open to Robson Hall law students, Asper School of Business students, and law students across Canada.
There are no prerequisites and the course qualifies for academic credit at Hebrew University. Robson Hall and a number of other law schools to date have permitted transfer credits to their own programs. This program is made possible through the generous support, from among others, of the Winnipeg chapter of the Canadian Friends of Hebrew University.
We aim to make the program as accessible as possible. Robson Hall students are eligible for a substantial subsidy. For students at other Canadian Law Schools, please see the links below.
What is the focus of the program?
Students will learn how Israel adapts, in its constitutional and regulatory framework, to the social and economic challenges and then compare and contrast that with the Canadian experience. Just about every issue that affects Canada – building a modern high tech economy, integrating newcomers and members of traditional societies, and promoting human rights in the face of various internal and external pressures – applies to Israel.
Many areas of academic interest are covered by aspects of the program including: constitutional and human rights law, international business and trade law and immigration and refugee law.
