The Israel Legal Advocacy Project endeavors to provide accurate and comprehensive information on law and legal issues concerning the State of Israel and, where relevant, as they impact the Jewish people as a whole.

Project Goal

  • Creation of a comprehensive and unified internet law library, current and historical, for lawyers, governmental officials, journalists, researchers, and the general public.
  • Compilation of primary documents, historical and current, using digital facsimiles of originals, when available.
  • Compilation of and/or references to important secondary sources.
  • Sufficient explanation and analysis to provide context.
  • Timely information and documentation on current legal issues affecting Israel and the Jewish people.

Development Plan for the Library

What follows is the working outline (with links to live pages) of those sections which the Project intends to include in the database.  They are mirrored in the Library menus at the top and in the sidebar.

There are and will be, in addition, certain pages not in the menu structure, which flow from subjects on pages which are in the menu.  An example is two pages under “BDS Legislation” which have tables of legislation enacted by states of the U.S., along with copies of the laws.  Another example is a page under “International Criminal Court” which has the amicus submissions filed on the “Palestine” question.
