The Asper Foundation Awards Annual Funding to University of Manitoba International Law Program

The University of Manitoba’s Robson Hall Faculty of Law is pleased to announce that its locally founded international law program – celebrating its tenth anniversary and one of Canada’s largest international programs – will now be supported annually by The Asper Foundation which is located in Winnipeg, Canada.

In recognition of The Asper Foundation’s generosity, the highly competitive, for-credit summer program which brings students to Israel will be renamed The Asper International Program on Israeli Law and Society (Mishpatim) formerly called Introduction to Israeli Law and Society Course Program.   

Running for three weeks every May, the course compares the Israeli and Canadian legal frameworks and features numerous excursions across Jerusalem and Israel, including trips to the Supreme Court, the Israeli Parliament and more. Course subject matter includes topics ranging from business law, to immigrant and refugee law, and human rights law to international trade law.
