Harvard law students get a legal tour of Israel

hls in jaffa 1 website

A group of just under 50 Harvard Law School students, mostly not Jewish, just completed a whirlwind first visit to Israel, in both the geographic and legal spheres.

In some ways, the Harvard law tour (not to be confused with Harvard undergraduates who also recently toured), sponsored by the American Israel Friendship League (AIFL) and some other anonymous sponsors, was a typical student tour of Israel, covering major cities like Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Safed.

The traditional tourist sites on the March 14-22 tour of Masada, the Dead Sea, a military base and Yad Vashem were also part of the journey for the students, who while all attending Harvard, hail from countries as diverse as Australia, Canada, China, Ethiopia, India, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore and South Korea.

But much of the tour was decidedly untraditional, delving into many of Israel’s legal controversies and issues.

The students met with a US Embassy official, Jerusalem Post Palestinian affairs correspondent Khaled Abu Toameh, the Tebeka Ethiopian legal aid group and Anat Hoffman of Women of the Wall to discuss many of those controversies.
