Visiting Research Fellowship

Visiting Research Fellows at the Faculty of Law

The Hebrew University (HU) Faculty of Law has earned an international reputation for teaching and research excellence, resulting from the many overseas accomplishments of Faculty members and the success of HU Law students in international competitions and exchange programs. Accordingly, we are now applying our legal knowledge and academic experience on a more global scale, catering to the interests of first-rate researchers from around the world.

The Hebrew University’s cutting-edge research environment, extensive network of libraries and online databases, and accomplished faculty from around the world make it an ideal place to conduct research in a range of scholarly disciplines.
