Jonathan Givati

I am the Sylvan M. Cohen professor at Hebrew University Law School. I am a member of Hebrew University's Center for the Study of Rationality as well as its Center for Empirical Studies of Decision Making and the Law.

My scholarly interest lies in the area of economic analysis of law. My work is both theoretical and empirical. I apply the tools of law and economics to three main areas of law: tax law, law enforcement, and administrative law and regulation. I have also published in the areas of private law and judicial behavior. I received a PhD from the Economics Department at Harvard University in 2013, and an SJD from Harvard Law School in 2011.
