The Jewish Law Syllabus Project 

The Jewish Law Institute has established the Jewish Law Syllabus Project to help facilitate the increasing attention to Jewish Law in American law schools.  With the continuing emergence of Jewish Law as an area of focus in both the American law school curriculum and American legal scholarship, recent years have seen an expansion of law school courses and centers dedicated to exploring various aspects of Jewish Law.  Through the Jewish Law Syllabus Project, the Jewish Law Institute has compiled a collection of syllabi from Jewish Law courses, providing an important resource for scholars who are interested in undertaking the teaching and study of Jewish Law, as well as for those who are currently pursuing these fields.
 
To contribute syllabi to the collection or to obtain copies of syllabi, please contact Samuel J. Levine, Professor of Law and Director of the Jewish Law Institute.
