"I loved my student exchange at Hebrew University!  The Israeli legal landscape is fascinating and complicated, and it underscored a unique learning experience unlike anywhere else in the world.  My time here will certainly help me to be a better lawyer.

What more, the university is accommodating, the fellow students are friendly and intelligent, and the country is beautiful, accessible, and unforgettable.

I am grateful for the opportunity to study at Hebrew University!"

I appreciated the orientations provided and the flexibility in our choices of courses and schedules. The program allowed me to travel around the region and to meet amazing people from all kinds of backgrounds and cultures. This has been one a life-changing experience for me, and it has encouraged me to live abroad and discover other cultures.
