  • Description

    Regardless of how contemporary a case may seem, decisions made in rabbinical courts are determined through the examination and implementation of both ancient and modern texts of Jewish law. However, rabbinical law takes into account that business deals will be made and conducted in accordance with local law. This CLE course, presented by an arbitrator and administrative attorney of Beth Din of America, New York’s rabbinical court, will explain the role of secular law and local custom as they apply to proceedings and judgements in rabbinical courts and the various procedural issues that may arise.
