Dr. Sharon Yadin is an associate professor at Peres Academic Center School of Law and School of Business Administration in Israel and a leading, internationally recognized legal expert on regulation theory and methods. She has published two books and over 20 articles in prestigious platforms. Her award-winning work is frequently cited by the Israeli Supreme Court and her thesis on regulatory contract doctrine was accepted into Israeli law in a precedential ruling on the natural gas regulation. Dr. Yadin earned her doctorate degree in law from 

Tel-Aviv University, and her post-doctorate from The Hebrew University. Her current research focuses on soft regulatory strategies employed by administrative agencies, such as contractual regulation and regulation by shaming. She has also worked on projects that aim to shed light on the digital aspects of the administrative state. In her work, Dr. Yadin developed new concepts to better understand the modern regulatory state, such as regulatory shaming, e-regulation, and regulatory literacy, and analyzed their normative and theoretical implications in depth.   

New Scholarship: E-Regulation 


The new face of the regulatory state is digital. In this era of e-regulation, administrative agencies use social media, web platforms, and mobile applications for regulatory purposes. New forms of online communication allow regulators to harness public opinion as an enforcement mechanism in such diverse areas as product safety, environmental protection, workplace injury prevention, customer satisfaction with financial services, child safety, restaurant sanitation, and health service quality.
