Public Committee to Study Bar Association


Justice Minister Ya'akov Ne'eman ordered, Monday, the establishment of a public committee to study the conduct of the Israel Bar Association. The order came after a ruling by Tel Aviv District Court Judge Kobi Vardi, which severely criticized the Bar because of its internal struggles.

Retired Supreme Court justice Ayala Procaccia will head the panel, which is being asked to give its opinion on the association's structure, the relationships between its institutions, the distribution of the institution budgets and the need for outside supervision of its finances.
