Welcome to The Tikvah Center for Law & Jewish Civilization

Based on its Tikvah experience, NYU Law School is exploring the possibility of establishing a broader based Institute of Law and Religion which, in addition to the classical scholarly mission, would constitute a platform for dialog and projects among different religions, principally Christianity, Islam and Judaism. The Tikvah Center at NYU School of Law will be going on Sabbatical during academic year 2014/15 as the Law School contemplates and plans this broader initiative. Stay tuned to our web site for further updates on the progression of these changes. Please note, that we will not be accepting applications for academic year 2014/15.
