Barak joined the Supreme Court in 1978 and in 1995 he was appointed president of the Court, a position he held until his retirement from judicial functions in 2006. Barak is considered one of the most brilliant and productive legal experts of our times. His rulings have influenced all fields of law in Israel and are studied by attorneys and researchers from around the world. Throughout his years of judicial service, Barak never abandoned the field of legal research. He published a lengthy list of books and articles, focusing in particular on judicial interpretation, human dignity, and the role of the judge in a democratic society. Several of his books have been translated into various languages. Aharon Barak received the Israel Prize for Law in 1975 and the Zeltner Prize in 1984.
