The Israel Summer Law Institute is open to all students who have completed their first-year courses and are in good academic standing at an ABA-accredited law school. Space permitting, students with other backgrounds and qualifications are also eligible for acceptance.
Participants who attend a law school other than the University of Baltimore School of Law or Touro Law Center must submit a letter from their law school verifying that they meet the above requirements. The acceptance of credit for courses taken at the Israel Summer Law Institute is subject to the approval of each student's home school. The University of Baltimore School of Law and Touro Law Center are fully accredited by the American Bar Association and are members of the Association of American Law Schools.
Qualified students will be accepted into the program in the order in which they apply. The University of Baltimore School of Law and Touro Law Center reserves the right to limit the number of students accepted.
The sponsoring universities reserve the right to make changes in or to cancel the program for unforeseen or extraordinary circumstances. If the program is canceled, all fees and tuition payments will be refunded in full.
Students are encouraged to secure their own health insurance coverage for the summer; policies for this purpose are also available from the University of Haifa.
Applications, (Israel Summer Law Application) accompanied by a non-refundable application fee of $200, must be received by April 15, 2013 Students may be accepted after this date at the discretion of the Director on a space available basis. Acceptance is conditional upon receipt of a letter of good standing from the applicant's home institution.
The application fee will be credited toward the tuition.
