Students without an academic background in International Law will participate in an introductory class. This course, beginning a week before the start of the semester and continuing for several weeks into the first semester, provides a solid foundation in International Law, giving students the tools necessary to approach issues raised in the course of the program.

The program focuses on two main fields of study.

  1. Theoretical courses - provide a substantial interdisciplinary understanding in areas such as human rights and transitional justice.
  2. Application - this portion includes comparative and historic courses, in which the students are exposed to relevant cases throughout history and across the globe. Special emphasis will be given to the Israeli-Arab conflict and its possible resolutions.
