THE HEBREW UNIVERSITY FACULTY OF LAW is the flagship of legal education and research<br />

in Israel. The Faculty of Law was founded as the first law faculty at an Israeli university in 1949, just<br />

after the establishment of the State of Israel. Most of the leadership of the Israeli legal system, including<br />

most of our past and present Supreme Court Justices, have graduated from the law faculty, or taught<br />

therein. Most of the recipients of the prestigious Israel Prize in Law and Criminology also hail from<br />

the faculty. The law faculty’s research work, which involves developments in legal theory with a global<br />

application and more practical oriented study of law from critical and comparative perspectives,<br />

is regularly published in the world's top law journals and publishing houses.<br />

THE GEORGE A. KATZ TORCH OF LEARNING AWARD is presented annually to distinguished<br />

members of the legal community and recognizes the leadership, scholarship and dedication<br />

to the betterment of humanity. It embodies the high ideals and philanthropic commitment of<br />
