Advantages of Ono’s Law School
- Practical job training during the course of degree studies – The Ono Legal Clinic Center for Social Justice: The Ono Legal Clinic Center for Social Justice provides pro bono legal aid in a variety of different fields. The Clinic Center offers students opportunities to work with a broad span of public entities, such as police, the Knesset (parliament), judges, labor courts, psychiatric and medical law, and (financial) execution office and acquire extensive and comprehensive legal experience while they study. The goal of the legal clinics is to instill future attorneys with sensitivity to cases of injustice and heighten their involvement in society and community, using the multicultural experience and legal tools they acquire when they provide legal aid. Students at the Ono Legal Clinic Center for Social Justice receive the unique opportunity to learn firsthand how legal cases are handled from beginning to end and gain experience that adds to their legal knowledge. Providing legal clinic services is one of the building blocks to social change that is at the center of the Ono Academic College mission.
