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

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