The College of Law and Business, a forerunner in legal and business higher-education in Israel, is a staunch and active supporter of altruistic goals, such as social mobility and bettering Israel’s international status. The College has launched merit-based scholarship program that offers the smartest applicants for the October 2018 class to waive anywhere from 20% – 50% of their tuition, based on their academic record.

 

Who is the College of Law and Business?

The self-called ‘boutique college’, CLB is a highly respected and distinguished institution in all of the circles where it takes an active role.  For example, CLB’s Law & Ethics of Human Rights publication placed 4th in the prestigious Washington and Lee University law journal rankings, together with Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Boston College.  During their studies, students compete in international mediation and arbitration competitions, such as the prestigious International Chamber of Commerce mediation competition in Paris where the students won first place.

 

The College’s strong social and ethical principles are coupled with student-centric learning and international focus, as evident in the faculty members from the best academic institutions worldwide, and offering law students to intern with Immigration and Refugee clinics at Harvard and the University of Pittsburgh and business students to participate in an Eco-Hub startup incubator in Israel in their final year.

  • Business degree applicants can study all classes in English and earn a BA in Entrepreneurship and Sustainability, where students participate in an Eco-Hub startup incubator in their final year.
