All other employees may take unscheduled leave, but should contact their supervisor to discuss the needs of their unit and individual circumstances.
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
The Faculty of Law of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is the oldest law school in Israel. Established in 1949, the Faculty is the alma mater of almost all the Justices on the Supreme Court of Israel, and among its alumni are many of Israel's most prominent legal academics, Attorneys-General, senior government officials and representatives and practicing lawyers. Initially housed in the buildings of the Ratisbonne Monastery in the center of Jerusalem, the Law Faculty was one of the first academic units to be relocated after the Six Day War in the historic buildings of the Hebrew University Campus on Mount Scopus. This complex, including the original building of Israel's National Library has served as the home of the Faculty ever since. The Faculty's Bernard G. Segal Law Library is the largest law library in Israel containing some 300,000 volumes (80,000 titles) and holds several unique collections of Jewish, Israeli, Roman law and the philosophy of law.
Courses offered to Georgetown students have been arranged specifically for Georgetown Law students and other exchange students. It is expected that most courses open to Georgetown students will also include Hebrew University students. Courses are expected to be small in order to promote meaningful interaction with other students and faculty. Additional information about the Hebrew University exchange program is available here. Please note that students will only be allowed to take courses offered at the Faculty of Law for credit.
