Prominent Israeli Legal Authorities Join Washington Peace Parley

A number of Israeli legal authorities are participating in the Washington Conference on World Peace Through Law, which was underway here today. Over 2,500 lawyers, high court judges, ministers of justice and observers from 110 nations have gathered to improve existing laws and legal mechanisms. Plans will be sought to make international law, courts, and procedures more effective to build and preserve world peace.

The Israeli delegation includes Dov Joseph, Minister of Justice; Moshe Ben Ze’ev, Attorney General of Israel; Dr. Joshua Rotenstreich, president of the Israel Bar Association; Zvi Berinson, a justice on the Israel Supreme Court, and Shabtai Rosenne, head of the legal department of the Israel Foreign Ministry. Mr. Rosenne is one of four panelists to discuss existing and proposed world courts. Mr. Rotenstreich will serve on a panel, including Iran and West Germany, to examine arbitral tribunals.
