The groundbreaking idea behind this program is genius: Train native English-speakers, primarily Americans, to be Israeli lawyers -- in English!
That's a fantastic idea!
For Israel, it's a first-time effort to tap into the great minds and personalities of America's youth to enter their legal field. For students, it's one-of-a-kind opportunity to really learn about the country, its history, political and legal workings -- in an inviting and welcoming atmosphere.
Though, I've been in that country for years, within an extremely brief amount of time, I discovered levels of the underworking of the 'real' Israel far beyond anything I previously imagined.
The staff are extraordinarily bright, knowledgeable and extremely helpful.
These are professionals.
But, at the same time, they're amazingly personable and encouraging.
This program is a fantastic channel for Israel's continued growth and expansion. And, a wonderful opportunity for students who want to grow personally and professionally.
