The BFHU Legal Group has been in existence since the early 50s and supports the Hebrew University Faculty of Law.

It is run by a committee made up of barristers and solicitors.

The Legal Group organises the annual Lionel Cohen Lecture at the Hebrew University where a prominent UK lawyer is invited to deliver a lecture on a specialist topic.

Previous recent lecturers include Lord Dyson, Sir Christopher Greenwood CMG, QC, Lady Justice Hallett CBE, Sir Stanley Burnton, Lord Grabiner QC,  Lord Judge, Lord Neuberger, Baroness Scotland, Sir Mark Potter QC, and Lord Collins.

The group holds an annual Legal Dinner celebrating the Lionel Cohen lecture.

The group has previously been chaired by various leading UK lawyers including Ellis Birk and Lord Dyson and for the past ten years by Lord Pannick QC, a leading Public Law and Human Rights barrister and a cross bencher in the House of Lords.

All members of the legal profession are welcome to join our mailing list and attend our events.
