American Sales Law
Prof. Lisa Bernstein, University of Chicago Law School

This class in American Sales law approaches the subject from both a jurisprudential and practical lawyering standpoint. It is based on the idea that while the Uniform Commercial Code, the statute that governs transactions in the sale of goods in the United States, is called a “Code,” that term bears no resemblance to the Codes of continental legal systems, or even other American private law statutes like the Tax Code. Rather, the Uniform Commercial Code is sui generis. One of the core goals of is to get you to think like a commercial lawyer which means getting you to think like a client. Another is to teach you the most important things you need to know to avoid letting an American lawyer get the best of you in a negotiation.

Regulations Global Energy Markets
Dr. Efraim Chalamish, NYU Law School

“Regulating Global Energy Markets” is a course that examines the regulatory and business framework for international energy markets. Providing an overview of the global energy markets and their various key players. The class will look at both supply chain and demand management in global markets. Examine the intersections between multinational corporations, governments, and the NGO community with respect to the impact of the energy sector on social, human rights, and environmental aspects of our lives.

American Tort Law and the Market
Prof. Dorfman Avihay, Tel Aviv University Law School

The course will offer a sustained analysis of U.S. tort law and remedies in the commercial sphere. The course will conduct in-depth examinations of certain key torts regulating the conduct of market actors and will then consider whether the doctrine meets the demands of justice and efficiency. The course will both consider some "general" torts such as negligence and nuisance and extend the analysis to capture torts and doctrines, such as products liability, economic torts, and breach of fiduciary duties.

Introduction to U.S. Tort Law
Prof. J. Shahar Dillbary, University of Alabama Law School

The objectives of the course are to introduce the students to the basic principles of the common law of torts as applied in U.S. jurisdictions. The course will consider and debate the policies underlying those principles; and develop skills in critical reasoning and advocacy.

Introduction to Israeli and Comparative Law
Prof, Pablo Lerner

The course aims to afford students with basic tools to understand the principles that guide Israeli law as well as various legal systems throughout the world, providing a framework to examine and analyze domestic law within a global frame. Students will learn about the Israeli judiciary, the profession of jurist in Israel, and characteristics of an Israeli legal education. We will also compare British with American law, a comparison that will certainly boost the understanding of contemporary common law. In respect to continental law, the course will provide a historical background on institutions of Roman law.

Israeli Constitutional Law
Prof. Gila Stopler

The course is intended to provide basic tools for the understanding of Israeli constitutional law. The issues discussed will include: Basic Principles: Jewish and Democratic State; What is a constitution?; Justifications for judicial review Israel’s Basic Laws: normative status; Expanse and interpretation; The limitation clause The Constitutional status of state institutions: the Knesset, the government The Constitutional protection of human rights: overview, equality, freedom of speech, freedom of conscience and belief, social and economic rights, the protection of rights in a state of emergency.

Public International Law
Dr. Myriam Fienberg, University of Haifa, Minerva Center

The course introduces the normative structure and theoretical foundations of Public international law (PIL), as well as the institutional and procedural aspects. It also looks at interplay between PIL and domestic legal systems, and in particular the state of Israel. The course first discusses the foundations of PIL: the sources of international law, the principle of statehood, relations between international and domestic law, the rights and obligations of states and the issue of state responsibility.

Comparative Human Rights Law
Dr Scott Stephenson, Melbourne University Law School

This course will examine some of the major questions such as  · what explains the incredible growth of human rights over approximately the last six decades. · What are the concerns with the judicial enforcement of human rights · are there ways of alleviating these concerns · how do courts in different countries approach the resolution of difficult human rights issues? In examining these questions, the course will draw on materials from a number of common law jurisdictions, including Australia, Canada, India, Israel, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States, as well as the Council of Europe.

Introduction to Jewish Law
Dr. Avishalom Westreich

The object of the course is to acquaint students with the origins, characteristics and the principles of Jewish Law. The course begins with introducing the primary sources of Jewish Law dating from Talmudic period to the modern age. We discuss the history of the Halakha, the nature of the halakhic decision-making, and the status of halakhic traditions throughout the history of Jewish Law. We complete the course while discussing the place of Jewish Law in modern day society and in particular in the state of Israel.

Introduction to Legal Philosophy
Dr. Ronit Donyets Kedar
The course addresses some of the central aspects of the role of law in modern society. It starts by an inquiry into the nature of law itself, and discusses the possibility to think about law as a rational system of rules; it then moves to discuss the sources of law and the debate between positivism and non-positivism. This is followed by an inquiry into the nature of related concepts, such as morality and justice, and especially into the relationship between these concepts and the concept of law.

Corporations Law
TBA

This course provides a foundational understanding of the legal structure of modern business organizations. The course focuses on how companies take form and operate. We will study how decisions within companies are made, how companies are financed, how externalities are regulated, how shareholder voting happens in public companies, and how corporate directors and officers comply with fiduciary duties.
