Examples of participation in international conferences and international cooperation:
In March 2023, we held a fascinating and innovative webinar as part of the webinar series “Therapeutic Jurisprudence (TJ) Around the World.” We discussed the important role of TJ and new ways to integrate TJ in different legal areas. We focused on “Financial Rehabilitation” and “Online Dispute Resolution” on how TJ can assist in shaping better procedures, norms, and practices. Our panel Discussion included Judge Dan Saadon, The Magistrate Court, Tel Aviv District, Dr. Karni Perlman, the Managing Director of the Non-Adversarial and Therapeutic Justice Center (NATJC), and Adv. Itay Krayden, a director at the NATJC. Thank you to the International Society for Therapeutic Jurisprudence (ISTJ) and all our colleagues who participated and shared their insights, special thanks to Prof. Shelley Kierstead, Judge Pauline Spencer, Prof. David B. Wexler, Prof. Michael Perlin, and all other colleagues.
