The Tikvah Center is pleased to announce its annual theme for Academic Year 2013-2014, "Law and the Exception." The theme is especially important to any applicants to the Tikvah Fellows program who wish to be considered in the pool of "Thematic Fellows."
Welcome to The Tikvah Center for Law & Jewish Civilization.
In September 2009, thanks to a generous donation from The Tikvah Fund, New York University School of Law inaugurated The Tikvah Center for Law & Jewish Civilization. The Center, which is situated at 22 Washington Square, formally opened its doors in academic year 2009-2010. The foundational premise of the Center is 1) that the study of Jewish law can profit immensely from insights gained from general jurisprudence; and 2) that Jewish law and Jewish civilization can provide illuminating perspectives both on the general study of law as a per se academic discipline, and on the reflection on law as a central social institution refracting the most important issues in our society.
