Law & Social Change
Founded in 2008, Tel Aviv University Journal of Law & Social Change (Ma'asei Mishpat) seeks to provide an academic forum for discussing and examining various aspects of the relation between law and social change.
A first of its kind in the country, the Journal is dedicated to the publication of articles which expose jurists and the general public to the burgeoning activities in the field of public interest lawyering. The Journal's articles typically explore, analyze and conceptualize such activities, and frame the knowledge and vocabulary which derive from it.
Each year, the journal publishes scholarly contributions by practitioners, regulators, activists and legal scholars, both from Israel and around the world.
The Journal is edited and peer-reviewed by an editorial board which consists of practicing lawyers, side by side with LL.B and LL.M students, all under the supervision of a designated academic advisory committee, which is headed by the Journal's editor-in-chief.
Each issue contains approximately ten original major articles in Hebrew and one article which is authored by an internationally-renowned scholar and translated into Hebrew.
The latest issue (number 5) was released in February 2013. Issue 6 is expected to be released in November 2014.
