YALE: Q & A


Before He ordained my acceptance to Yale for 2009, He led me to this (below) on the Internet and I modified it for my answers. Fajat, brother use this for your 2010-11 application. Read my blog too for inside info on the class of 2009-10. It's a winning formula!

Praise Him for His mercy, kindness and protection.

How did I hear about the Yale Law School LLM Program?

My first encounter with Yale Law School was through the works of YLS faculty members,which I came across during my law school years. Later on, I discussed the possibility ofadmission to the LLM at YLS with my law professors, who earned their LLM and JSDdegrees at YLS. I also talked with recent graduates who told me about their Yaleexperience, and thoroughly explored YLS website and the various courses available toLL.M. candidates. Last but not least, I had a glimpse of Yale Universitys beautifulbuildings and vibrant social life through the experiences of Rori Gilmore of my favorite TVseries, WBs Gilmore Girls.

If I am to try and pick the legal writer that influenced me the most, it wouldundoubtedly be the late Robert Cover. His works have changed my way of thinking aboutlaw, and made me want to become a legal scholar. They have also led to further inquire intothe works of other of YLS prominent scholars. And time and time again I found the mostnovel and original ideas in them. For just two examples out of many, the writings ofProfessor Jack Balkin have inspired me the think about the fundamental structure of thedevelopment of the common law, and Professor Carol Rose has surely broadened myperspective as to the shaping of property law as a social characteristic.Besides my academic interest in YLS, I see a great advantage in the small size ofthe LL.M. class that allows for an individual supervision and guidance from facultymembers. I am positive that it creates a special and intimate learning environment.Moreover, when I thoroughly explored YLS website, I was excited to see the diversecourses available to LL.M. students, and found myself almost unable to choose betweenthem. Together with the stories of my professors at Tel Aviv University, who found at Yalea route to their life as scholars and teachers, I am now positive that YLS will be aninspiring atmosphere for me to work, write and live in and I am looking forward tobecoming a part of its community.

My plans for teaching after I graduate from Law school?
Upon graduation from the LL.M. program, I would like to continue and writea J.S.D. dissertation at YLS. Then, I plan to return to Israel and join its legalcommunity as a scholar and activist. I hope to join one of the law faculties in thecountry, preferably in Tel-Aviv University, my alma mater. I hope I could givesomething back to the faculty that has been my academic home, and that through mywriting and teaching, I would be able to spark curiosity and passion for law in mystudents and in my readers, just as my law professors at TAU inspired me.Finally, I wish that I could share my ideas and insights with people outside ofthe legal community and help distribute the legal knowledge. I hope to do so bylecturing and writing to the wide public (something that I already began to do throughmy blog on law and history). However, another way for me to pursue this goal isthrough integrating my legal research and teaching with practical work advocating forhuman rights, in the Public Defense or NGOs in Israel. That way I shall be able tointegrate my legal research and practice, in a way that is beneficial both for mypractical experience and my theoretical perspective.

Amen, Amen, Amen.

Oh brother Christ- Choice, until when we will have to suffer to have an acceptance letter?

I have to accept or refuse Penn, Columbia and Chicagos offer by the end of March, so I hope to have Yales news sooner.

Yesterday I saw a program that I recorded some time ago about the Skulls and Bones, that shows Yale campus Oh how lucky will be thus who get an acceptance letter!

Brother, we will both get in. I have already prayed for you and it shall be so. Together we'll explore New Haven and leave our legacies. That day when we both get that call will be one of the best of all days! I dream about it and our desires shall be answered.

Bless you!

REM, you're definitely the best of all men! That reward will be Yale and we shall share it together.

BTW, I thought you should consider this http://www.yale.edu/macmillan/iac/certificates.htm as part of your plans for Yale.

We can talk about it later in the year in New Haven - so it shall be!
Amen.
