Visiting Scholars

The ISCP aims to become a center for the research and teaching on matters related to the Israeli Supreme Court.  To this end, the Project will be a temporary home to visitors of various types.

Faculty visitors teach, participate in public programs, and conduct research on the Israeli Supreme Court, Israeli law, comparative constitutionalism, comparative law, or legal issues that stand at the heart of the Court's jurisprudence.  For the 2016-2017 academic year, the project is hosting Professor Rivka Weill of the Radzyner Law School at the Interdisciplinary Center, Herzliya.  Professor Weill specializes in Israeli and comparative constitutional and administrative law.

Justice in Residence. The law school is pleased and privileged to welcome a current or former Israeli Supreme Court Justice to be in residence at the law school every year.  Visiting Justices spend up to a month in residence, meet with students, participate in classes, give talks to the faculty, and participate, in general, in the intellectual life of the law school as well as in ISCP activities.  Past Justices in Residence have been:
      Fall 2014 -- Hon. Eliezer Rivlin
      Fall 2015 -- Hon. Asher Dan Grunis
      Summer 2016 -- Hon. Isaac Amit

Fellowship of the Supreme Court of Israel. In the future, the ISCP plans to support a one to two-year fellowship. The fellow will specialize in research and scholarly writing, working closely with project co-directors, Prof. Michael Herz and Prof. Suzanne Last Stone. The fellow will also teach one course per academic year on the Court, examining its history and its significance and analyzing its key decisions.
