Adi Youcht is a doctoral candidate at the Tel-Aviv University Faculty of Law and a fellow member of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics. She holds an LL.B. (magna cum laude), LL.M. (magna cum laude), and BA in Management (magna cum laude) – all three from Tel-Aviv University. She also took part in complementary studies in Philosophy and Comparative Literature & Semiotics at the Tel-Aviv University Faculty of Humanities. During 2012-2013 she was a Visiting Research Fellow at Columbia Law School Center for Gender and Sexuality, and in 2013 she was an invited Visiting Scholar at University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law. Previously she taught at the Tel-Aviv University Faculty of Law, the Bar-Ilan University Gender Studies Program, the Open University Economics & Management Department, and Sha'arei Mishpat College. Her clerkship was completed at the State Attorney's office in Jerusalem.

Adi's doctoral research aims at offering an initial critical examination of the value "body" in bodily injury claims based on the presumption that bodily injury claims are a central locus for constructing the body, and relying on the assumption that the current social understanding of the body remains incomplete without theorizing the body in law. The project aspires to examine the configurations of knowledge concerning the body as produced in bodily injury law, to critically appraise the implications of these configurations of knowledge on the recognition of bodily damages or the eligibility of tort remedies, and to inquire how these configurations of knowledge affect the legal construction of body-derived identities (i.e., disabled or sexual identities).
