ACRI's Contribution to 75 Years of Independent Israeli Law

Over the past 50 years, ACRI has made significant contributions to several litigations which have been included in a book that has been launched by the Judiciary on the 75-year anniversary of Israeli independent law.

This book brings together lists written by judges and registrars from all judicial instances that have contributed to the development of Israeli law, since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. It represents historical and contemporary perspectives on issues that have preoccupied society and the state throughout history.
