Excellence is a value that has been made the motto of the school and thus thoroughly fostered. And the Law School’s outstanding student program is an inseparable part of this value.
The outstanding student program has several major purposes:
- Providing the select group participating in it with broad eduction and advanced professional tools.
- Creating a community of excellent students so as to enhance the intellectual dialogue to which they are exposed.
- Directing excellent students toward high academic achievements.
Our school encourages participating students to serve as teaching and research assistants while on the program.
As part of the program’s courses, students are provided with tools to improve their reading and writing skills, increase their ability to handle a variety of complex texts, and sharpen their analyzing and criticizing capabilities.
Every student on the program is mentored by a Law School faculty member throughout his or her entire program career. The mentor can be addressed on any academic, professional or personal matter.
In addition to the unique academic experience, students participate in various social and charity activities for the welfare of the community and society.
Our school encourages outstanding student who have completed their freshman year to apply for this program.
The program includes:
On this workshop students deal with complex texts of various disciplines and critically analyze them. The different viewpoints to which they are exposed are based on feministic, economic, psychoanalytical, cultural, linguistic and literary theories.
This workshop consists of weekly meetings with school faculty members who present their research to the students. In preparation to each meeting, every student submits a position paper critically analyzing the study. During the meetings one student explains his critical response to the study, and a discussion is then held. The course seeks to promote and deepen the acquaintance of outstanding students with faculty members and provide them with the opportunity to express their research qualities, sharpen their critical skills, and experience the research process.
