URI YADIN-IN MEMORIAM
We regret to inform our readers of the death of
Professor Uri Yadin, for many years a member of
the Editorial Board of the Israel Law Review and
its Chairman for a number of years. Professor Yadin
made an immeasurable contribution to the develop-
ment of the Review. Following are excerpts from
the eulogy delivered by Professor Izhak Englard,
Dean of the Faculty of Law at the Hebrew University
of Jerusalem, at the Memorial gathering held at the
Faculty on January 1, 1986.
A central figure of the generation of men who laid the foundations of
Israeli law is no longer with us.
It is quite impossible to imagine the new legislation of Israel without
the crucial contribution made by Professor Uri Yadin since the establish-
ment of the State of Israel. First as Director of the Department for Legisla-

he shaped Israeli legislation. His personal impact on the law was enormous
and almost beyond grasp, from the drafting of the first constitutional laws
of the State and through the preparation of a comprehensive private law
code in his final years.
The crown of learning complemented his immense practical achievements.
He served as a teacher in the Faculty of Law almost from its founding.
He authored several 'books and scores of articles, and edited a number of
books as well as periodicals.
He had unbounded energy in the field of law. In 1951 he was responsible
