Justice from Israel’s high court makes metro Detroit appearance

As part of a one-and-a-half-week U.S. tour, Justice Salim Joubran of the Supreme Court of Israel will be visiting Auburn Hills campus of the Thomas M. Cooley Law School.

At his 1 p.m. May 3 appearance, he’ll be speaking on “The Israeli Judicial System and the Role of the Supreme Court.” The event is open to the public, and is being held in conjunction with the American Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists, which is sponsoring Joubran’s U.S. visit.

The tour and presentation, according to the AAJLJ, is meant to have judges, lawyers, legal academics and law students 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.

Seating is limited, and reservations are recommended. To learn more, contact Julie Tiffany at tiffanyj@cooley.edu or (248) 751-7873, Ext. 7784.
