Palestine Laws to Admit Women to Bar

Download PDF for this date

The fight for the admission of women to the bar in Palestine, carried on singlehanded by Mrs. Ginzsberg, daughter-in-law of the late Hebrew philosopher, Achad Ha’am, has prospects for a successful conclusion.

After taking the fight to the highest court in the land, Mrs. Ginzberg was now assured by Col. Josiah Wedgwood, in a communication she received from him, that the Colonial Office had promised to give instructions to the Palestine government to promulgate an ordinance authorizing women to practice law in Palestine.
