Information about the course can be found on the SAO’s website.
Summer School - Hebrew University
Program: Israel and International law - three week summer course running from May 2-24 - completely in English, created by the University of Manitoba's Robson Hall Law School and the Hebrew University.
About: Students will learn how Israel adapts, in its constitutional and regulatory framework, to the social and economic challenges and then compare and contrast that with the Canadian experience. Just about every issue that affects Canada – building a modern high tech economy, integrating newcomers and members of traditional societies, and promoting human rights in the face of various internal and external pressures – applies to Israel.
Many areas of academic interest are covered by aspects of the program including: constitutional and human rights law, international business and trade law and immigration and refugee law.
Field trips across Jerusalem and Israel are built into the program, including visits to the Old City of Jerusalem and all of the Holy Sites (Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Dome of the Rock, Western Wall), Dead Sea (salt water - you float!) and Masada (historical site), Israeli Supreme Court and more!
**Approved for transfer credit by McGill**
Costs: Tuition - $2160 USD. Program donors aim to cover a minimum of 80% of the tuition cost - to be confirmed in February.
Application and Deadline: February 19 2018

Call for proposals – Student-initiated seminars
The student-initiated seminar is a vehicle that is available for BCL/LLB students to propose, organise, and run their own seminars, under the supervision of a full-time Faculty member. Among the objectives of this vehicle are the following: to give students an opportunity to reflect on teaching and learning and to be involved in course design; and to provide space for experimenting with innovative teaching and learning strategies.
Veuillez faire parvenir vos propositions au Secrétariat aux études (sao.law [at] mcgill.ca d'ici le 9 mars 2018 à 15h00. Jusqu'à deux propositions seront retenues pour l'année universitaire 2018-2019. Le contenu des propositions est décrit ci-dessous.
Crédits octroyés pour la préparation du séminaire
Les propositions sont rédigées, et les séminaires organisés et animés par des équipes de 2 ou 3 étudiants (les « animateurs »), sous la supervision d’un membre à temps plein de la Faculté (le « superviseur »). Les animateurs des séminaires peuvent s’inscrire à un cours de 2 crédits (à titre provisionnel, nous nous servons du véhicule ‘Group Assistants’) pendant la session qui précède la présentation du séminaire, afin de préparer le séminaire, la liste de lectures, le site internet pour le cours, les méthodes d’évaluation, la planification préliminaire des sessions, et de faire tout autre travail préparatoire qui s’impose.

If peer evaluation is employed, the course convenors, in conjunction with the supervisor, must develop marking templates or guidelines and map out the process through which peer evaluation is to proceed. Decisions will need to be made as to whether evaluation will be anonymous; whether students will submit their work to one other student or to the larger group for evaluation; and how comments and feedback will be communicated. Convenors who opt for peer evaluation are strongly advised to consult Teaching and Learning Services for advice and guidance. Peer evaluation should not result in the awarding of marks or the ranking of assignments.
Proposals must contain the following elements:
Winter Recruitment & Advocacy Course (W2018)
Students participating in the Toronto, Ottawa, London, Calgary or Edmonton interview processes and wishing to take Advocacy this term must notify the SAO once they receive interview results.
