Legal Forum Annual Conference - Summary

Last night the Legal Forum for Israel held its annual conference in Jerusalem and was honored to host Justice Minister MK Ayelet Shaked.  Other guests included Head of the Jerusalem Bar Association, attorney Asher Axelrod, founding members of the Legal Forum Yitzchak and Malkit Miron, Chairman of the Legal Forum, attorney Yossi Fuchs, Director of the International Legal Forum, attorney Yifa Segal, attorney Mark Zell, Daphne Netanyahu, and Prof. Eliav Shochetman.  

In his opening remarks, attorney Axelrod emphasized his support of the Forum and the wide range of areas it addresses, and called upon attorneys to join the organization. In addition attorney Axelrod stated that the Jerusalem Bar Association looks forward to cooperating with the Legal Forum.

Minister Shaked expressed her deep appreciation for the Forum's activities, and even called upon other attorneys to join the Forum and strengthen its influence.   

The event received extensive coverage in the media following statements made by Minister Shaked during her talk with Legal Forum Director General Nachi Eyal, regarding her intention to begin applying Israeli laws in Judea and Samaria within a year, in cooperation with the Defense Ministry with essentially the purpose being that ultimately any law which was passed in the Knesset will either apply to Judea and Samaria by virtue of the legislation itself or by an order of the military rule [which legislates in Judea and Samaria], or by any other manner which is considered appropriate. 

This statement made waves in Israel due to the fact that it forges a clear legal connection between Israel and Judea and Samaria, particularly with regard to legislation and human rights. It seems only natural that a statement like this should be made at the Legal Forum for Israel's conference which brings together national and Zionist attorneys who are working constantly to strengthen the State of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.
