Israel (2013) – Haifa
Israel Summer Law Institute
About the Program
As of April 16, the 2013 program has been cancelled.
For American law students who seek an enlightening and educational summer experience abroad, the Israel Summer Law Institute provides a unique opportunity to study comparative law in Israel. All classes are conducted in English. Courses focus on comparative international law and are taught by American and Israeli professors.
Few countries can offer more richness of history, natural beauty, and cultural diversity. Likewise, no location in Israel presents the blend of academic excellence, cultural integration, and spectacular scenery more than Haifa. The University of Haifa is the most ethnically diverse institution of higher learning in the Middle East. It is situated at the peak of Mount Carmel, which rises dramatically from the beaches of the blue Mediterranean to the lush forests surrounding the campus.
Touro Law Center reserves the right to modify or cancel a program for reasonable cause, including
but not limited to insufficient enrollment, severe political instability, or any serious condition that
may threaten the safety of the students. If a program is cancelled, any money paid to Touro by a
program participant will be fully refunded within 20 days, except for room and board and
transportation payments utilized prior to the date of cancellation; Touro will endeavor to help each
enrolled student attend a similar program, if the student so desires.
