OT but FYI It is very hard to break into academia - law school - in Israel. They have excellent instructors but they will not take you unless you are connected (same city, know you from prior). Say for example you published 10 articles in law journals and have a book in development. You apply for an entry level or lateral position - you will likely be turned down in favor of someone who is a friend of someone already a tenured professor who recommends that other person even though that other person has no publishing track record. This mirrors other jurisdictions as well but is very different than the US merit based hiring protocol.
