Ephraim Heiliczer’s research focuses on society as a victim of crime. His research is entitled “Transformation of Criminal Laws: The Demise of Sodomy, Adultery, and Treason and the Evolution of Bribery.” The first part of his dissertation examines the demise of the criminal “conduct unbecoming a citizen,” focusing on the crimes of sodomy, adultery and treason. This analysis involves a comparison of treatment of these laws in civilian and military law, and the impact of the demise of these laws in modern western societies. The second part of the dissertation focuses on the transformation of the law of bribery, in particular commercial and foreign official bribery, and its relationship to the demise of “crimes unbecoming a citizen.” The final part of the dissertation focuses on the impact of the evolution of bribery on international business.
Prior to attending Columbia Law School, Ephraim was a lecturer at Netanya Academic College in Israel and worked as a litigation associate in private practice.
