The LL.M. program is designed for students with an LL.B. degree (or an American J.D. degree) who would like to advance their knowledge in the legal world, focusing on corporate and commercial law, and drawing on IDC’s large pool of faculty members engaged in the study of business law and its associated fields.
The program benefits from the tradition of cooperation between the various schools at IDC Herzliya, specifically between Harry Radzyner Law School and the Arison School of Business. This cooperation enables the LL.M. program to include courses on topics such as finance, accounting and theoretical economics, providing students with greater intellectual, analytical, and practical capabilities.
The philosophy underlying the LL.M. Program at the IDC rests on the notion that some business lawyers specialize in the practice of law and some concentrate more on theoretical aspects. However, only those lawyers with a comprehensive understanding of both the theory of and the practical applications of the law can be truly distinguished business lawyers. IDC strives toward this excellence by combining theoretical courses (such as law and game theory and economic analysis of law) with numerous practical courses interwoven into the LL.M. program.
Graduates of the program will be granted a Master's Degree designating their specialization in the area of Business Law.
