Civil Law Meets Halachah

August 7, 2010

Inset: Attorney General Robb Hulls at the Rabbinical Council of Victoria

In a first for Australia, Attorney General Rob Hulls launched the rabbinical commercial arbitration  course last week. This program will qualify rabbis to help mediate in commercial disputes through the mechanism of ‘beth din’, as reported by the AJN.

Rabbi Yaakov Glasman said that it was “an eye-opening forum in which civil law met halachah.”

The Attorney General congratulated the Rabbinical Council of Victoria for being a champion of cultural change in commercial mediations. The council is one of the first cultural groups to embark upon this training. It will reduce stress upon the state legal system if future litigation can be abrogated in successful negotiations out of court.

One of the training sessions featured a scenario where mediation needed to be held between a Jewish school and parents who had not paid their fees.
