Mikayla appointed Foreign Law Clerk at Supreme Court of Israel

Bond Law student Mikayla Brier-Mills has been appointed as a Foreign Law Clerk at the Supreme Court of Israel, where she will be clerking for Justice Salim Joubran from July – December 2016. 

Foreign Clerks work in several different areas of the law, such as public international law, criminal law, civil procedure, tort law, constitutional law, corporate law and contract law. Ms Brier-Mills will undertake research regarding specific legal questions that pertain to pending cases, providing the Court with substantive support for legal decisions it renders.

Clerking at the Supreme Court of Israel is a unique opportunity to contribute to the decision-making of a foreign court at the highest level, which draws upon American, Commonwealth and European precedents. The application process was international and highly competitive.

Justice Salim Joubran is the first Israeli Arab to be permanently appointed to the Supreme Court. He is Chairperson of the Central Elections Committee to the 20th Knesset and has founded several Centres’ aimed at promoting peace and equality between the Jews and Arabs in Israel. Ms Brier-Mills indicated that reconciliation between the Jews and Arabs in Israel is one of her most fervent passions and she is excited to work with her Justice in this respect.

“I chose the Supreme Court of Israel because its decisions have formed the basis of reforms in international humanitarian law and have further affected the policy making and thinking of people who profess in administrative and constitutional law. These are among my favourite areas of law in the legal profession”, Ms Brier-Mills said.
