The Law of Return and the Law on Citizenship were enacted by the Knesset, Israel's Parliament in the summer of 1950 (on the Jewish calendar, 20th Tammuz 5710).

While that statement -- many law students go to work at large law firms -- has been true for decades, the firms to which those students are going have changed substantially, in terms of size, scale of activities, mobility of both partners and associates, and demands on lawyers' time.
Law practice has changed, with firms ever more focused on the "bottom line." Students and new associates, burdened by massive debts, are also attentive to the economics of practicing law; a prime consideration for both partners and new associates is how to make the most money in the least amount of time.
Law students today may see themselves as individuals without much ability to alter the firms where they will practice, just as senior partners may have a parallel sense of inability to affect change in the law schools that supply their work force.

 LENIN'S TOMB: Israel's Law of Return based on Nuremberg Laws?
It is often said that Israel's Law of Return, allowing anyone with one Jewish grandparent automatic citizenship, is based on Nazi Germany's Nuremberg Laws segregating Jews from "aryans." This misses the point in a couple of crucial aspects.

Chair lectures are traditional at the School of Law when professors are elevated to prestigious chairs, and the five Harrison chairs, established last year with a $30 million gift from the estate of David and Mary Harrison of Hopewell, Virginia, are among the handful of most handsomely endowed professorships in the American legal academy.
Contract law is at risk of becoming “irrelevant,” Scott said, unless “courts and legislators come to see that, in fact, less contract law is better than more.” He proposed that the field move toward “self-enforcement as the preferable alternative to legal enforcement for many promises that fall outside the boundaries of the classical model.”

 Law of Return Arouses Ire
It is sad that Letty Cottin Pogrebin does not recognize Israel's Law of Return for what it is: part of a tissue of laws and regulations that have systematically despoiled the Palestinians of their birthright.
The so-called Law of Return states, in effect, that a Brooklyn- or Odessa-born Jew who may never have laid eyes upon what is now Israel, and whose ancestors may not have seen it since biblical times, is more entitled to Israeli citizenship than a Palestinian whose family has lived there continuously for 2,000 years.
Pogrebin argues that Israel's Law of Return, which allows any Jew to go to Israel, is a form of affirmative action compensating for anti-Semitism in the world.
