International collaboration


Bar-Ilan Law is a founding member of ATLAS - Association of Transnational Law Schools.

ATLAS was formed in 2006 with the mission of bringing together talented doctoral students in the field of law from around the world. ATLAS strives to promote in-depth study of legal issues related, but not limited to: comparative legal and regulatory responses to globalization, the evolution of transnational law, and the challenges involved in international governance.

On a yearly basis, ATLAS organizes a summer school for graduate students, “Atlas Agora,” meant to think and rethink the present-day issues in international and transnational law and in the methods of legal research. This event is designed to encourage legal scholarship by fostering a community of doctoral candidates and promoting the development of exceptional dissertations. The program consists of three different parts: lectures, workshops and a faculty conference. During the workshop sections, all participating doctoral candidates have the opportunity to present their graduate work-in-progress and receive expert commentary.

Current ATALS members are:

  • Antwerp University, Belgium
  • Bar-Ilan University, Israel
  • Erasmus School of Law, Rotterdam, the Netherlands
  • Osgoode Hall Law School, Toronto, Canada
  • University College Dublin, Ireland
  • Université de Montréal, Canada
  • University of Graz, Austria

The academic director of ATLAS at Bar-Ilan Law is Dr. Ori Aronson.


The Private Law Consortium

The Private Law Consortium is an annual meeting bringing together scholars from eight leading law schools, including Bar-Ilan Law Faculty, City University of Hong Kong Law School, Durham Law School, Erasmus Law School, Rotterdam, National University of Singapore Law School, Oslo faculty of Law, Trento Law School and Vanderbilt law School. The primary goal of the project is to produce high-quality scholarship by facilitating the exchange of ideas and criticisms in the area of private law. Its secondary goal is to create and maintain a scholarly community committed to the study of private law and to strengthen the ties between the member schools. The consortium supports investigation of all areas of private law, including its traditional main categories of property, contracts, torts, and unjust enrichment, as well as other related topics such as intellectual property, commercial litigation, trusts, and remedies. The consortium aims to further the study of these fields and of private law as a whole and encourages comparative and interdisciplinary work.

Academic director: Dr. Yotam Kaplan
