Nine scholars of the Institute have just returned from a trip to Israel. They all work in the Institute’s research field 'Legal Transfer in the Common Law World'.

They participated in a joint conference with the David Berg Foundation Institute for Law and History at the Buchmann Faculty of Law, Tel Aviv University.  The workshop, part of the bilateral 'Initiation Workshops' scheme promoted by the Max Planck Society, was an opportunity for the Frankfurt-based researchers to exchange views on the legal history of the common law world with leading legal historians from various Israeli universities

The trip included a legal history tour of Jerusalem and a case study in the authenticity of sources at the ancient fortress of Masada in the Judean desert, site of the legendary siege which ended the First Jewish-Roman war.
