Dr. Hofri-Winogradow holds a B.Mus (1998) from Berklee College of Music, an LL.B. (2002) and M.A. (2004) from Tel-Aviv University and a D.Phil (2007) from Oxford University. He is an Associate Professor and the Montesquieu Chair in Comparative Law and Legal History at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He is also a member of STEP – the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners – having received the organization's Diploma in International Trust Management in 2010. In the Fall of 2013, Prof. Hofri-Winogradow will serve as a Visiting Professor at both the Georgetown Law Center as well as at the Centre for Transnational Legal Studies in London.
Prof. Hofri-Winogradow's research interests are primarily trust law and legal history. He is also interested, more broadly, in inter-generational wealth transfer and the bodies of law that regulate it: trusts and estates, fiduciary law, elder law, pensions, insurance and relevant issues of tax and family law. One of his grant-winning research projects addresses the uses of private trusts in Israel – and Palestine earlier – from the 1930’s to the present. Dr. Hofri-Winogradow’s other works have addressed current developments in trust law, Eighteenth Century English law, Adam Smith and the Scottish Enlightenment. Additionally he has written about the current rise of non-state halachic adjudication in private law matters in Israel.
Adam is the founding moderator of the Jerusalem Legal History Workshop and he won the Cegla Prize for Excellent Legal Writing in 2010. Also in 2010, he won what was then the largest grant ever given to a legal scholar by the Israel Science Foundation.
