Cooley Law School Hosted the Hon. Justice Salim Joubran of the Supreme Court of Israel
Cooley Law School was proud to host the Hon. Justice Salim Joubran of the Supreme Court of Israel on May 3, 2011. He spoke on the Israeli Judicial System and the Role of the Supreme Court.
Justice Joubran met with judges, lawyers, legal academics and law students, and other policymakers, as well as representatives of the Jewish and Arab-American communities during his visit. The American Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists (AAJLJ) sponsored his visit to the United States with stops in New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago and Detroit, from April 25 to May 5, 2011.
The AAJLJ believes that Justice Joubran's visit afforded a unique opportunity for audiences in the United States to learn more about the important role of the rule of law in Israel, the strength and diversity of its judiciary, and the challenges facing the legal system, as seen from the viewpoint of the first permanent member of the Supreme Court from the Israeli Arab community.
