Transferring from Harvard Law School to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem Law School

WonderlusterWonderluster Registered User Posts: 2 New Member
Hi!!

If I were to transfer from Harvard's law school to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem's law school, then I would lose the credits acquired at Harvard and would have to start over at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem or not? I don't want to rush it and ask an advisor or anyone from both of these schools. Any ideas? Anyone?

    So, you haven't applied to, let alone been accepted to any law school yet and you feel it necessary to ask about transferring the credits you haven't earned from the school where you haven't applied or been accepted?

    I don't know if an Israeli law school would accept your US classes, but I doubt it. What are you hoping to do with a law degree from Hebrew Law school? Do you want to be a lawyer in Israel? If so, look up what is required to become licensed.

    In the US you need to take 6 semester of full time courses, most based on US law - constitutional law, contracts, civil procedure, evidence. There might be one or two courses on international contracts or maritime law, but the focus in on US law, especially in the first year.

    A typical HLS student would finish his or her JD class work at HLS, get a JD there, and then get an LLM or equivalent from a foreign law school.

    @Wonderluster " Where are you getting your information from exactly? If you don't have the answer to my question kindly..." Click on your name, click on threads, click on the thread where you wrote the information that @anxiousenior1 so kindly quoted. Part of the job of a lawyer is evidence based argument. If your performance here reflects your aptitude, I don't think you have to worry about anything even remotely connected to HLS.
