Prof. Hofri-Winogradow holds a B.Mus (1998) from Berklee College of Music, an LL.B. (2002) and M.A. (2004) from Tel-Aviv University and a D.Phil (2007) from Oxford University. He is the Montesquieu Chair in Comparative Law and Legal History as well as Associate Professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Faculty of Law. He is also a member of STEP - the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners, having received that organization's Diploma in International Trust Management in 2010. In 2013, Prof. Hofri-Winogradow will be a Visiting Professor at Georgetown Law Center, as well as at the Centre for Transnational Legal Studies in London, UK.
Prof. Hofri-Winogradow's research interests are, primarily, trust law and legal history. He is also interested, more broadly, in inter-generational wealth transfer and the bodies of law regulating it: trusts and estates, fiduciary law, elder law, pensions, insurance, and relevant issues of tax and family law. One of his grant-winning research projects addressed the uses made of private trusts in Israel and, earlier, Palestine, from the 1930s to the present. Other works addressed current developments in trust law, Eighteenth Century English law, Adam Smith and the Scottish Enlightenment. Yet other works address the current rise, in Israel, of non-state halachic adjudication in private law matters.
Adam is the founding moderator of the Jerusalem Legal History Workshop. He won the Cegla Prize for Excellent Legal Writing in 2010. Also in 2010, he won what was then the largest grant the Israel Science Foundation has ever given a legal scholar.
