Meirav Furth-Matzkin is an Associate Professor of Law at Tel-Aviv University Law School and an Assistant Professor of Law at UCLA School of Law. She teaches contracts and consumer law. Her scholarship focuses on contracts and consumer protection and regulation, which she studies from the perspectives of social psychology and behavioral law and economics. Dr. Furth-Matzkin previously served as an Olin Law & Economics Fellow and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago Law School and as an Olin and Private Law Fellow at Harvard Law School.
In her scholarship, Furth-Matzkin examines the often surprising disparities between the contracts we sign or click through, the rules that are meant to govern them, and the ways in which we actually behave in our daily interactions with others.
Furth-Matzkin received her B.A. and L.L.B. degrees (magna cum laude) at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and her LL.M. and S.J.D. at Harvard Law School, where she won the Dean’s Scholar Prize in Behavioral Economics, Law & Public Policy, the John M.
