Asper International Program on Israeli Law and Society (Mishpatim) - Application due on Feb. 14!

Applications to the newly named The Asper International Program on Israeli Law and Society (Mishpatim) are open, and spaces are quickly filling up. As a quick reminder, the details of the program are below.

The newly named, The Asper International Program on Israeli Law and Society (Mishpatim) is a three week law course, open only to Canadian law students who have completed at least one year of law studies, founded by Dr. Bryan Schwartz of the University of Manitoba's Robson Hall Law School, and supported by Canadian philanthropic foundation, The Asper Foundation.

At inception, the course was exclusive to Robson Hall students, and has since opened nationally, now partnering with seven Canadian law schools.
This year, the Rothberg International School is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the
course, which is now considered one of the largest international law programs available to Canadian students.
