Ancient and Premodern Law at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem

 

Activities

 

The Hebrew University has promoted over the years the study of ancient law, not only in the premises of its Law School, but also in various departments of the Humanities Faculty dealing with ancient cultures. Under the leading scholarship of Professor Reuven Yaron, specialist of Ancient Near Eastern Law, Roman Law, Talmudic and Biblical Law, a tradition of Near Eastern and Roman laws research has developed at the Hebrew University, paving the way for generations of students and researchers in ancient law. Students can now approach this field from various perspectives, and contacts with international institutions and universities dealing with ancient law have been established over the years. The need for cooperation and exchange of information between specialists belonging to the various universities of the country has led last year to the launching of the Israeli Forum for the Research in Legal History of the Ancient and Pre-Industrial World, an initiative of young scholars of the Departments of Ancient Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations – Egyptology and of Classics. The forum has already organized in 2007 a workshop “From Sumer to the Genizah – Diplomatics and Legal Documents in the Ancient World”, with the participation of international specialists in the field of Ancient Law studies. In 2007, the Ancient Law Forum Group, a discussion group on the Internet has been created in order to promote the exchange of the latest news in the field of ancient law (conferences, workshops and events, new publications), as well as fruitful discussions on issues related to premodern law.
