You're thinking about your future. If you’re reading these lines, you're probably debating what you're professional life will look like in a few years- based on the decision you make today. You've made a few important decisions before, one of them- making Aliya. You've packed your life (perhaps your family, as well), moved to a different country, with a different culture and you've had to make a lot of adjustments to make things work. Hebrew is a tough language and that might have been an obstacle in your path to professional security and stability. The College of Law and Business (CLB) had exactly you in mind when launching the first-of-its-kind, bilingual (ENG-HEB) Israeli Law degree (LL.B.) studies in 2014.
This unique program offers candidates the opportunity to earn their degree in Israeli Law and take the Israeli Bar Exam- while studying in Hebrew AND English!
This is how it works:
Your studies will take 3-3.5 years (6-7 semesters), based on your prior academic achievements. Out of the 140 academic credits required for graduation, 70 are taught in Hebrew and 70 in English. Depending on your proficiency in Hebrew (Language Proficiency Test is a pre- requisite), you'll have the option to participate in an intensive Hebrew Ulpan (on premises) tailored to the curriculums requirements. During the first 4 semesters you may turn in assignments and take exams in English. Our experience has shown that flexibility is a key factor so we've adjusted the program to fit an evening track (3-4 day/week). This allows you to commit to earning your LL.B. degree while working or taking care of your family. Our stellar faculty members have earned their degrees in acclaimed universities around the world and bring a plethora of knowledge and experience to the classroom. We put a great deal of emphasis on preparing our students to a globalizing economy. For this reason, we offer a wide array of international programs such as internships, academic tours and courses, taking place in Europe, Asia and North America at top institutions. In fact, we offer select students a fast- track LL.M. degree, in collaboration with top universities in NY and Chicago. We want you to have all the options available to you- our LL.B. degree qualifies you to take the New York Bar Exam and practice law in NY.
In case you're wondering what job opportunities may be available to you as a native English speaker, CLB offers all students a Career Placement Service which will match your abilities- to the markets demands. Our expanding pool of prospective employer reflects a growing demand for English speaking jurists just like you, and we are proud to say that 90% of students utilizing this service are placed at top paying positions in Israeli law firms.
