On our agenda
The Israel Bar Association was established in 1961 as an autonomous statutory entity in order to incorporate the lawyers in Israel and to assure the standard and integrity of the legal profession.

Immigration to Israel with a Criminal Record: Difficult but Possible Advocate Daniel Aspiro, Advocate Amit Acco and Amos Arbel*
The right to immigrate to Israel under the Law of Return is restricted by the Ministry of the Interior to prevent entry to immigrants who pose a risk to public health, state security, or possess past criminal records. The Population Authority has a procedure for handling these cases. In most cases, a criminal past does not amount to a deprivation of a substantive right like the right under the Law of Return, and rejection can be handled professionally against this background.
The Program enables the implementation of Section 3(2) of the Israel Bar Association Law, which stipulates that "The Bar Association is entitled, inter alia, to provide legal aid to those of limited means". Indeed, the objective of the program is to increase accessibility to the legal system, and to protect the rights of those who lack the means to hire professional legal services.
