Zvi Meitar’s generous scholarship allowed me, for the first time in my life, to focus on research. The Center afforded all of us with the exact combination we needed: a warm and protective academic home that allowed us to raise a variety of questions, and a platform for discussion in a safe and empowering environment.” Internationally renowned for its leadership in legal studies, the Zvi Meitar Center for Advanced Legal Studies is home to the country’s future legal scholars and experts.
