Located in the heart of Tel Aviv, Tel Aviv University (TAU) Law Faculty is Israel's premier law school. It offers renowned faculty, vibrant student life, and opportunities for extracurricular activities. Small by design, the faculty's impact on the legal world is measured by its accomplished graduates and its ongoing scholarship and outreach through numerous centers and projects.

Each year the Faculty offers courses in English.  Permanent faculty members, all experienced in teaching courses in leading universities abroad, teach five of these courses. In addition, the faculty offers a variety of concentrated/intensive courses, taught in English by visiting professors from leading universities abroad. There is also a possibility of doing a two or three-credit supervised research paper.

Exchange students may also participate in courses and activities of the Overseas Student Program (OSP), which is extracurricular. Exchange students may take one free course in the OSP, excluding the Hebrew language course.

Sessional Dates

Dates vary with the Jewish (lunar) calendar. In general:

The courses taught in English are intensive courses lasting between three to eight weeks. Some of the courses may start on different dates during the session.
