On behalf of the Jewish Law Institute at Touro Law Center, I am pleased to announce the initiation of the Jewish Law Syllabus Project.With the continuing emergence of Jewish Law as an area of focus in both the American law school curriculum and American legal scholarship, recent years have seen an expansion of law school courses and centers dedicated to exploring various aspects of Jewish Law. The aim of the Jewish Law Syllabus Project is to help facilitate this increasing attention to Jewish Law in American law schools, through the compilation of a collection of syllabi from Jewish Law courses. This collection will serve as a resource, for scholars who are interested in undertaking the teaching and study of Jewish Law, as well as for those who are currently pursuing these fields.
Toward that goal, I would like to invite you to participate in the Jewish Law Syllabus Project. I would appreciate if you would send to my attention copies of Jewish Law syllabi, from both current and past courses, taught by you and/or others. Please send email attachments, to: slevine [at] tourolaw.edu ; or printed copies, to: Touro Law Center, 225 Eastview Drive, Central Islip, NY 11722.
I thank you in advance for your participation, and I welcome any questions and comments you may have about the project.
