Issam Aruri is General Director of the Jersualem Legal Aid & Human Rights Centre (JLAC), which renders legal aid to vulnerable communities in combating human rights violations. JLAC has since become a key and major player in certain interventions; undertaking pro-bono legal cases related to house demolition, forced displacement, land confiscation, and more recently settler violence. Without JLAC’s services, victims would face costly private sector fees compelling them to forfeit their claims. More recently, JLAC has coupled its legal aid rendered to individuals with public interest cases, legal reform, community awareness, advocacy and other interventions.
