This is a two-credit intensive course taught in English by Professors Michal Barzuza and Dotan Oliar, members of the Virginia law faculty. The course is a combination of introductory lectures, group discussions, guest lectures by experts and two field trips designed to give students a direct experience of the Israeli entrepreneurial culture.
|Students will be required to submit a paper (2400-3000 words, including footnotes). The paper should engage one of the various topics or bodies of law covered in the course and either (1) engage in a critical assessment of the Israeli approach, or (2) engage in a critical comparative analysis of the US and Israeli approaches. The paper is due via EXPO (deadline to be announced by instructors, but it will be no later than 2 weeks after last class session).|
