This talk explores cause lawyering and strategic litigation of Palestinian rights before the Israeli Supreme Court. It reflects on the fundamental question of bringing Palestinian cases before the Israeli Court: is it a strategy that ultimately contributes to legitimizing fundamentally unjust policies, or is it a medium of legal resistance? How does the Israeli Supreme Court respond to the legal claims of Palestinians? Are we witnessing a major change in the ideological composition and jurisprudence of the Court in recent years? What value and potential does bringing Palestinian rights cases before Israeli courts have? These questions will be explored from the perspective of a lawyer who led major Palestinian rights cases before the Court.
