The International LL.M. is without a thesis.

Writing a thesis is a path to explore a topic of your interest in depth, and is a necessary prerequisite for doctoral studies at TAU. 

International LL.M. students may apply to write a thesis after successful completion of the LL.M. program in order to continue onto Ph.D. studies at TAU Law.
