Bar-Ilan is situated in the Greater Tel-Aviv area, about 20 minutes from the Tel-Aviv center ("the city that never sleeps"), beach and entertainment district, and about 50 minutes from Jerusalem and its holy sites. Approximately 88,000 Bar-Ilan University alumni hold key positions in society, as well as in the public domain, in leading economic and security sectors. One of the law school's graduates is Foreign Minister Tsipi Livni (Class of '83), one of the main contenders for the Prime Minister's office.




Bar Ilan University is the second largest university in Israel, with a student population of approximately 24,000 at the main campus in Ramat Gan. The law school has about 30 full-time professors, 80 adjunct professors, several distinguished short-term visiting professors from the world's leading law schools, and over 2,000 students in its LL.B., LL.M., M.A. and PhD programs. It therefore has become a dynamic academic center with rich academic programs, supplemented by its legal clinics and research institutes. It also boasts a warm community and supportive learning environment that attracts excellent students from all over Israel. Its graduates have ranked number one for two years in a row in Israel's Bar Exams.

You may apply credit to your degree requirements with approval from the CU-Boulder Law School. See Law School rule 3-4-1 "Credit for Work Done Elsewhere" for more information.
