Nir is a PhD Candidate student at Zvi Meitar Center for Advanced Legal Studies at Tel Aviv University Law School. His doctoral dissertation, entitled "TOWARDS A UNIFIED THEORY OF CORPORATE PRINCIPLES IN THE EXTERNAL FIELDS OF CORPORATE LAW", is supervised by Prof. Avraham Tabbach and Prof. Ehud Kamar.


Nir's dissertation deals with exposing the changes that are caused to the principles of company's separate legal entity and restricting responsibility in all external legal fields to the field of corporate law. These changes cause significant legal difficulties and distortions in the corporation's principles: External-corporate laws and judicial legislation modify or dilute these principles for fulfilling various and other specific purposes, thereby unraveling the legislative harmony together with the theoretical principles upon which the corporation is founded. Nir discusses in his work and suggests possible solutions to these difficulties.


Nir obtained his LL.B. (2003). Nir received his LL.M. with distinction (magna cum laude) from Tel Aviv University (2016).


Prior to his doctoral studies, Nir worked fifteen years as an attorney and a Founding Partner of a Law Firm specializing in private, civil and commercial law, where he also works during his doctoral studies.


Nir has been a volunteer in various non-profit's organizations for many years. He is also the chairman of the Public Committee at "ENOSH" organization for Advancing and supporting the Legal and Personal Rights of people with psychiatric disabilities and their family members; Chairman of the Scholarship Committee at "Salty Foundation" that awards scholarships to students in universities and higher education; and writes and edits Cryptic crossword at attorney's "Haparklitim" magazine.
