Over 50,000 lawyers to vote for Bar Association leaders

The country’s over 50,000 lawyers are due to vote on Tuesday for a range of positions in the Israel Bar Association, including in the race for president between incumbent Doron Barzilai and incumbent head of the Tel Aviv and Central Bar Association Section Efrayim Naveh.

Who the lawyers vote in as president will not only substantially impact the future of the various law councils which make-up the organization, but may heavily impact the future of its relations with the courts.

The Jerusalem Post spoke to both Barzilai and Naveh to get their take on the key issues in the election.
