Prof. Reichman, President and Founder of IDC Herzliya, served in

the paratroopers of the Israel Defense Forces from 1960 to 1963,

earning the rank of lieutenant.

As a commander in the IDF Reserves, he fought in the Six Day War,

War of Attrition and Yom Kippur War.

Prof. Reichman received both LL.B. and LL.M. (1967) degrees with

honors from the Faculty of Law at the Hebrew University of

Jerusalem. He earned his doctoral degree in law (J.S.D.) at the

University of Chicago Law School.

From 1985 to 1990, he served as the dean of the Faculty of Law

at Tel Aviv University. In 1990, he founded Ramot Mishpat Law

School, the first private college of its kind in Israel not subsidized

by the government.

In the mid-1980s, Prof. Reichman initiated and led the team that

formulated a proposal for an Israeli constitution, and subsequently

chaired the Movement for a Constitution in Israel. As a result, the Knesset passed legislation in 1992 that turned part of the proposed constitution into Basic Laws.

In 1994, Prof. Reichman founded the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya, the first non-profit private institution of higher education in Israel. He has served as its president from its establishment to date.
