Episode 316 – Tackling the Controversial Judicial Reforms with an Expert in Law (Prof. Talia Einhorn)

Today we will be diving – yet again – into the current political turmoil in Israel, sparked by the proposed judicial reforms by the new Netanyahu government. For those who have been living on a different planet, massive demonstrations and an immense campaign throughout mainstream media against the reforms have led to a complete backlash, tearing apart Israeli society.

The place where these reforms are being prepared is the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, and more specifically the Law and Constitution Committee, led by MK Simcha Rotman, who was our guest on episode 275. Today, we have the privilege of speaking with one of the advisors for the head of the committee, Prof. Talia Einhorn, who just arrived from Jerusalem and even today took part in the committee.

Prof. Einhorn is an accomplished law professor, with countless articles and studies on important topics revolving around Israeli and international law, including a major treatise on Israeli private international law – the third edition of which was just released in 2022. She is a titular member of the International Academy of Comparative Law and has been serving as a member of the Advisory Committee for the Appointment of Senior Civil Service Officials. Join us as we discuss the current state of affairs in Israel and gain insight into the proposed judicial reforms from an expert in the field.
