Abstract

This article deals with an important aspect of law, society and politics – identities in law while focusing on Mizrachi ethnicity in Israeli law. The article reveals and analyzes some key aspects of Mizrachi ethnicity in the law and argues that Mizrachi identity in Israeli law is not only absent, silent, but also silenced. The article addresses some aspects of judging and judicial representation, legal education, legislation and culture.After unveiling and examining the relationship between law, nationality, socio-economic stratification and ethnicity, the article gradually focuses on Israeli law and suggests that Israeli law will anchor Mizrachi identities as a culture in law through group rights as well.In doing so, the article joins a relatively small number of critical studies on the lack of emphasis on Mizrachi culture in Israeli law and offers both theoretical and empirical contribution. In the first chapter the article offers a broad theoretical context of ethnicity, social stratification and nationality. In the second chapter, the article addresses the limitations of legal education in Israel. In Chapter Three, the article analyzes the absence of Mizrachi representations in the Israeli judiciary. In Chapter Four the article analyzes how without Mizrachi group rights in law it may suffer from further deprivation. The article includes empirical primary findings that validate its theoretical argument.
