This course book is about civil and human rights in the State of Israel as understood through the laws of Israel’s K’nesset, particularly the Basic Laws, and the decisions of the Israel Supreme Court sitting as the High Court of Justice. The coverage is similar to U.S. Constitutional Law courses with parallels to procedural and substantive due process, equal protection, speech, and free exercise of religion, yet is dissimilar with Israel’s non-parallels and protection of human dignity and labor. The Court’s reliance on sources that some judges and scholars outside of Israel would consider non-legal provides an opportunity for comparing legal systems and examining justice and fairness.
