(1931- )
   Born in Tel Aviv, Rubinstein graduated in law from Hebrew University of Jerusalem, received a Ph.D. from the London School of Economics, and served as professor of law and dean of faculty of law at Tel Aviv University. He participated in the founding of the Democratic Movement for Change (DMC) in the period following the Yom Kippur War (1973).
   He was chairman of the Shinui faction in the 10th Knesset (1981) and served as minister of communications in the 1984 Government of National Unity and as minister of education in the Labor-led governing coalition between 1992 and 1996. Rubinstein was reelected to the 14th Knesset (1996) and the 15th Knesset (1999) on the Meretz list. Retiring from party politics before the 2003 election for the 16th Knesset, he returned to academic life as dean of the faculty of law at the Interdisciplinary Center-Herzliya. He subsequently served as the center's president. He was a recipient of the 2006 Israel Prize for his contribution to judicial research.
