Sima Kramer is a state barrister, representing the Attorney General. She recently completed her doctoral dissertation in law, written under the supervision of Professor Alon Harel and Professor Yuval Feldman. Her research investigates duties in general and employee duties in particular, as directed towards the employer, colleagues and society. Her doctoral thesis focuses on interpersonal relations between employees and conceptualises these relations as a “Worker-Community”. In her dissertation, she analyses the consequences of this conceptualisation from both an ethical and a legal perspective, charting the evolution of the regulation of employee-employee regulations over time and placing them in a broad social, political and cultural context.
Sima holds a Masters in Law from the University of Toronto, with a thesis entitled “Customers as Trade Secrets v. Employees as Market-Makers: Introducing the Unified Approach of Innovation Policy”, while her LL.B is from The Hebrew University, with a minor in English Literature. She has published in a number of peer-reviewed legal journals, taught Public International Law at The Hebrew University and lectured on the law of trade secrets and privacy in the workplace. She recently won the Goldberg Prize for an article on Labour and Employment Law.
