Reflections on My Time at HU

By Rachel Zeliger, Toronto

Rachel ZeligerI first had the wonderful opportunity to study at Hebrew University for a summer short course in 2008 after my first year at Osgoode Hall Law School. The quality of teaching I experienced left a lasting impact on me and contributed to my decision to return to Hebrew University for my LLM studies in International Law and Human rights in 2011-2012. Financial support from CFHU made this possible for which I am beyond appreciative and grateful.

Studying at Hebrew University made a meaningful impact on me, both professionally and personally. I made aliyah approximately two years after completing my LLM (Master of Laws) studies. In 2016, I was accepted into a joint doctoral program (Human Rights Under Pressure) between Hebrew University and Freie Universitat Berlin.

As a doctoral fellow in this program, and a current PhD candidate at Hebrew University, I am exposed to lectures and one-on-one meetings with world renowned scholars in various fields pertaining to the study of human rights. I could not ask for a better program to complete my doctoral studies in.

Rachel is currently a Doctoral Fellow at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
