Yehonatan Givati 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.

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.
