Adv. Yonatan Green: Court never had the authority of judicial review to begin with

5th episode of ToI’s new podcast miniseries ‘Israel’s Judiciary: Reform or Ruin?’ takes a nuanced journey into looming legislation that could alter the country’s checks & balances

Is Israeli democracy in danger? A proposed High Court override clause has many concerned about a possible tyranny of the majority. Join us as a diverse set of legal experts discuss with ToI editors what’s currently at stake.

In this fifth episode of our limited series podcast, Adv. Yonatan Green argues that the override clause is not all bad. He refutes previous speakers’ statements and asserts that the court has assumed the power of judicial review without any legal authorization.

Green is the Executive Director of the Israel Law & Liberty Forum. He is a licensed attorney in Israel and in the State of New York, and obtained his degree in Law and Communications from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Green spoke at a Times of Israel live-streamed event on December 15 at the Israel Democracy Institute in Jerusalem on the topic of judicial reform.

In this episode, which is a session from that event, Times of Israel editor David Horovitz introduces Green and asks some follow-up questions.

Future episodes will include remarks from other speakers about specific cases of using a tactic of strategic litigation to broaden human rights.
