BMus (Berklee College of Music), LLB (Tel-Aviv University), MA (Tel-Aviv University), DPhil (Oxford University

Assistant Professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, my teaching focuses on comparative law, the history of Israeli law and trusts. I have published on Adam Smith, Eighteenth Century English law, and present-day Israeli developments, including Israel's constitutional regime, Arab Israeli women's 'custom' of giving up their shares in their parental inheritance, and the current renaissance of Halachic (Jewish Rabbinical) adjudication in private and commercial matters. I am an (academic) member of STEP - the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners, and am, appropriately, currently researching Israeli trusts practice - both its history and its current formations.
