Hello everyone. My name is Adam and my paper is on the Israeli legal system. The state of Israel is a western ? style democracy that has its roots from the British mandate over the Ottoman Empire after the defeat of Turkey in World War One.
The area of land where Israel is located used to be part of the Ottoman Empire, which was ruled by Turkey. After World War One when Turkey was defeated a British mandate was established.
The British mandate created a government which gradually replaced the old law, with English principles.
All aspects of law have adopted the English ways but the only Ottoman law that was still followed was their system of family law. This allowed religious courts of the different religious communities to set the laws and standards of family practices.
Israel is a parliamentary democracy
Many of the Presidential duties are ceremonial and formal. These duties include:
-opening the first session of a new Knesset
-accepting the credentials of foreign envoys
-signing treaties and laws adopted by the Knesset
The Knesset or Israel?s parliament is the country?s legislative body. The Knesset got its name and fixed number of 120 members from the Knesset Hagedolah
