Assoc. Prof. Eli M. Salzberger, 45, Vice Dean of the Faculty of Law since 2002, has been elected the Faculty’s new Dean. He takes up the position on October 1, 2005.
A specialist in the area of law and economics, he was the president of the Israeli Law and Economics Association, a member of the steering committee of the European Association of Law and Economics, and the Faculty’s representative on the European Union’s Erasmus Program in Law and Economics. The incoming Dean is founder and a co-director of the University’s Center for the Study of Crime, Law, and Society.

A native Jerusalemite, Salzberger received his degree in law from the Hebrew University, where he was editor-in-chief of the Law Review. Concomitantly, he obtained a B.A. in economics. His doctoral thesis was submitted to the University of Oxford, where he was awarded a Senior Scholarship at Lincoln College. His dissertation focused on an economic analysis of the doctrine of the separation of powers. He joined the University of Haifa in 1993.
Salzberger’s research and teaching areas include legal theory and philosophy, legal ethics, and the Israeli Supreme Court. He is a specialist in law and economics, and has gained an international reputation in the new area of law and cyberspace. The author of numerous published professional articles, he is co-author of two books with his Law Faculty colleague, Assoc. Prof. Niva Elkin-Koren: Law, Economics, and Cyberspace (published by Edward Elgar) and Economic Analysis of Intellectual Property (forthcoming, Kluwer).
Salzberger received numerous fellowships and prizes, notably the Rothschild, Fulbright, and British Council Fellowships, and Minerva, Israel Science Foundation, and German-Israeli Foundation research grants.
