Learn Your World - Israel

The Israeli legal structure is a hybrid of four principle systems: Ottoman law from the period of Turkish rule; British common law introduced during the period of the British Mandate (1917-1948); traditional Jewish law – Halachah; and legislation adopted by the Knesset, the national legislature, since the country’s establishment in 1948.
