Jerusalem in July 2013

Coming this July, Touro Law Center will be holding a 4 credit CLE program in Jerusalem.  The program will explore the important legal issues of self-incrimination and the duty of confidentiality, through a comparative analysis of Jewish law and American law.  The program will provide a deeper understanding of each legal system on its own terms, while identifying additional questions for further study. 
Speakers will include:  Professor Samuel J. Levine, Touro Law Center; Rabbi Yosef Carmel and Rabbi Moshe Ehrenreich, Eretz Hemdah.

The program will be held on July 9, 2013 at the Eretz Hemdah Institute of Advanced Jewish Studies in Jerusalem.  The cost of the program is $200 for CLE credit.  The cost includes 4 CLE credits and refreshments.
