 The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HU) presented an honorary fellowship to renowned patent attorney Michael Cypers on June 3 during the 87th Board of Governors meeting in Jerusalem.

Cypers has practiced corporate law and litigation nationally for more than 40 years. He  serves as a partner at the Los Angeles-based law firm Glaser Weil Fink Howard Jordan & Shapiro LLP, where he focuses on complex financial cases. A former adjunct professor at Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California, Berkeley, he has shared his professional talents with students at the Hebrew University’s Faculty of Law as a guest lecturer.

Cypers and his wife, Jackie Tavelman, have been supporters of American Friends of the Hebrew University (AFHU) since 2006. He has served on the Western region board of directors and the AFHU national board of directors. In 2016, the couple participated in AFHU’s national mission to Israel, where they were honored with a “Wall of Life” ceremony. 

Hebrew University president, professor Asher Cohen presented the fellowship to Cypers, “in recognition of his leadership within the American Friends of the Hebrew University, with profound thanks for his dedication to advancing political-science research, garnering significant support for advanced graduate studies in the field; in appreciation for his and Jackie’s long and meaningful relationship with the Hebrew University, which was celebrated with their inscription on the Wall of Founders and Wall of Life; and with gratitude for his contributions to the university’s faculty of law through his teaching.” 

“To me, Hebrew University has always been about the best of Israeli creativity and practical ingenuity, the strong connection between the Jewish family in Israel and the Diaspora, and creating developments that can make the world a better place,” said Cypers. “I am honored to receive this recognition.”

Cypers earned a Juris Doctor and a Bachelor of Arts in history from the University of California, Berkeley.
