LL.M. Program in International Business Law and Intellectual Property
Law Faculty, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

  • The Hebrew University of Jerusalem Law Faculty (HUL) is launching in the fall of 2012 a new LL.M. Program in English, focusing on International Business Law and Intellectual Property.
  • The Program offers a rich and advanced course of study in human rights and international law, fields that constitute an important part of the HUL’s long-standing reputation of academic excellence, and in which the HUL is a hub of international activity.
  • The Program is offered at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, one of the world’s leading academic institutions, which is situated in Jerusalem. The University and Israel – the “start-up nation” - provide a stimulating academic environment and a unique backdrop to the study of international business law and intellectual property.
  • Interested students may apply to join the program in the second semester of the 2012-2013 academic year (and could finish, in that case, their studies at the end of the first semester of the 2013-2014 academic year). Applications for second semester enrollment must be submitted by February 16th, 2012
  • The Program is run in cooperation with the Rothberg International School of the Hebrew University.
  • Minimal length of Program - One year
  • Teaching language - English
  • The Program is open to law school graduates holding an LL.B. or J.D. degree with a good command of English. Candidates for the Program will be selected on the basis of law school grades, letters of recommendation and past academic work.
  • Candidates who did not previously study at an educational institution where the language of instruction is English must submit official TOEFL scores or IELTS. The minimum TOEFL score required is 600 on the paper-based test, 250 on the computer-based test or 89 on the Internet-based test.  The minimum IELTS score is 7.
  • Tuition: $16,000. Tuition fees include medical insurance and certain extra-curricular activities. All candidates for the Program year are eligible to apply for partial tuition waivers (up to 35% of the tuition rate) on a personal and academic basis.
