Adv. Yifa Segal
is the founder and Director of the International Legal Forum (ILF), a nonprofit, proactive legal hub, centralizing efforts of hundreds of attorneys and activists worldwide, in their fight to promote peace and justice in Israel and in the Middle East, as well as tackle human rights violations, terror, the BDS movement, and anti-Israel operations worldwide

The ILF goes on the offensive by setting groundbreaking and strategic initiatives, including in Parliaments around the world, changing all levels of legislation as well as litigation meant to better interpret and enforce existing laws and change the reality on the ground.
