"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!"
