CLB Legal Clinics for Human Rights
The College of Law and Business operates 9 legal clinics as part of its Human Rights Program. Supervised by experienced faculty members, our students gain invaluable field experience by providing aid and representation to the community and helping to advance social issues in Israel. CLB's legal clinic for Human Rights recently set an important - national and international - precedent striking down an Israeli law allowing for the privatization of prisons.
CLB Human Rights Clinics was presented with the Gurney prize, an award presented by the Association for Public Law in Israel to human rights organizations that have initiated significant social change in the Israeli legal system.

INNOCENCE PROJECT CLINIC

Adv. Sigal Shahav
Convicting an innocent person is the greatest injustice a state can cause to an individual. New studies have shown that it's not a rare event as they use to believe in the past.
