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.
The Program is run in cooperation with the Rothberg International School of the Hebrew University.
- Program Length: Two Semesters

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.

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.
