Lawyers for the Rule of Law

MUSAWA recognizes the importance of the role that can be played by legal and professional figures in entrenching those principles, and the power that those figures can exert in the West Bank and Gaza with the potential for them to unite their efforts as pressure groups. Therefore, MUSAWA works to encourage this to guarantee the rule of law, to protect the principle of the separation of powers and to protect the basic rights of citizens.

 

MUSAWA’s experience has proved that creating legal coalitions is possible. The goal of these coalitions is to unite the efforts of legal figures towards achieving their goals through clear and specific demands; demanding political, legal and administrative decision makers abide by the law and apply it universally, and developing legislation, and human, cultural and financial resources, to promote justice and equality. The particular political and social upheaval in Palestine which increasingly calls for the proper application of the rule of law, in the face of general lawlessness, demands the establishing of Lawyers for the Rule of Law groups.

 

MUSAWA considers Lawyers of the Rule of Law as a professional tool to activate latent legal and human capabilities to achieve its goals. Practically this is achieved through managing a network of relationships; providing assistance for the Lawyers for the Rule of Law groups working in the West Bank and Gaza to help them form pressure groups able to influence the legislative, judicial and executive authorities. MUSAWA pitched this concept to remarkable enthusiasm and broad support throughout the West Bank.

 

MUSAWA ensures that the membership of Lawyers for the Rule of Law groups is based on a professional, independent, voluntary, and non-profit basis. MUSAWA opens membership for all lawyers and legal persons who believe in its goals and commit to working to achieve them. Below is a list of all lawyers currently active in the Lawyers for Rule of Law group:
