ESADE Law School
César Arjona holds law degrees from ESADE Law School (Barcelona), Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, European Academy of Legal Theory (Brussels) (LL.M., 2000) and Cornell University (J.S.D., 2004, with a doctoral dissertation on the legal thinking of Roscoe Pound, supervised by professor Robert Summers). Since 2003 he is associate professor at ESADE, where he teaches both at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Subjects taught include General Theory of Law, Legal Philosophy and Professional Ethics. He teaches and publishes in English, Spanish and Catalan, and has participated in conferences and given lectures in different schools and universities across Europe and North America. He has been visiting professor at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona), ICADE Law School (Madrid), the Center for Transnational Legal Studies (London), and Bucerius Law School (Hamburg). His publications cover a wide range of fields, from traditional studies on legal philosophy, to legal education and professional ethics, and they include the edition and translation into Spanish of the dissenting opinions of O.W. Holmes. In his last paper, "Amorality Explained", he draws on points of legal ethics and transnational law to conclude that legal practice in a globlalised post-Westphalian world falls beyond the justificatory scope of the standard conception of legal ethics. His writings also appear in national media and blogs. He has served in several committees including the Drafting Commission of the ESADE Declaration of Values, and has been Assistant Director of the Department of Public Law as well as Academic Advisor of the International Exchange Program at his home school. During the year 2013-2014 he will serve as Academic Co-Director of the Center for Transnational Legal Studies.

Adam Hofri-Winogradow specializes in inter-generational wealth transfer and the bodies of law regulating it: trusts and estates, fiduciary law, "elder law", pensions, insurance, and relevant issues of tax and family law. He is the first Israeli academic to specialize in trusts law.
Adam is also a legal historian. One of his research projects, recipient of what was until 2012 the largest-ever grant the Israel Science Foundation has given a legal scholar, addressed the uses made of private trusts in Israel and, earlier, Palestine. Other works address Eighteenth Century English law, Adam Smith and the Scottish Enlightenment. Yet other works address the current rise, in Israel, of non-state halachic adjudication in private law matters.
Since 2008, Adam is a member of STEP - the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners. He received that organization's Diploma in International Trust Management in 2010.
During Fall 2013, Adam will be a Visiting Professor at Georgetown Law Center, as well as at the Center for Transnational Legal Studies in London, UK.
Adam is the founding moderator of the Jerusalem Legal History Workshop, a leading Israeli forum for research in legal history.
Adam makes occasional media appearances, such as his December 2008 interview for OTV, an Egyptian TV channel. On December 25, 2009, the Jerusalem Post printed an in-depth interview with Adam, entitled "The Pluralist". A more recent interview with Adam is available at http://law.huji.ac.il/eng/pirsumim.asp?cat=2637&in=2542.
