For thousands of years, civilization has thrived and survived in the Middle East. Empires have risen and fallen. Religions were born. This part of the world is the genesis of civilization and with each one came a unique set of rules and regulations. The International LLM at Tel Aviv University is taking a contemporary approach to law in the region that bore Hammurabi’s Code, where Abraham obeyed God’s commands, the land that followed the prophesies of Jesus and Muhammad. The Crusaders, the Mongols, the Ottomans—they all imposed their own will, their own laws. It all started here.
Today, Tel Aviv is the center of Israeli industry and commerce. Israel’s only stock exchange as well as nearly 40% of the country’s finance and banking industry is located in Tel Aviv. High-tech is Israel’s number one industry and has been the engine of Israel’s rapid economic development over the last decades, even in the face of a global economic crisis. As a city that encourages innovation and creativity, Tel Aviv is the heart of Israel’s high-tech and information-based industries and is home to the largest number of startup firms per capita of any country.

There, you will experience the ancient surrounded by the modern including beautiful beaches, amazing food, and architecture that will take your breath away.
