Seminar: "Palestine ConCourt Judges discussing approaches to judicial interpretation"

15 September 2020

In September, the Constitutional Transformation Team (CTN) partnered with Palestinian Constitutional Studies Center, when they hosted an experts’ session with members of the Palestinian Constitutional Court to discuss comparative approaches to judicial interpretation.

Seven judges of the Constitutional Court participated in Palestine, with the CTN team engaging online via Zoom. Prof Cheryl Saunders led the session, with support from Dr Tom Daly and Dr Anna Dziedzic. The discussion was very engaging, with judges sharing their own experiences and reflections on the topic. Prof Saunders provided a range of comparative perspectives, discussing a couple of specific cases to illustrate variations in the approach to interpretating the law in different jurisdictions.
