legal studies

. Katsav was born in Yazd and Mofaz was born in Tehran. Life After graduating from high school in Yazd and receiving his BS in Law in Teheran, he set off for France to continue his legal studies and to take his MS and PhD. Afterwards he returned to Iran and began teaching Literature and Law at the University of Tehran. The Mozaffaris were a family that settled in Khorasan (greater Khorasan) from the beginning of Caliphal (Caliphate) rule there. They stayed in Khorasan up until the Mongol invasion of that province, at which point they fled to Yazd. Serving under the Il-Khans, they gained prominence when Sharaf al-Din Muzaffar was made governor of Maibud (Meybod). He was tasked with crushing the robber-bands that were roaming around the country. Sharaf al-Din's son, Mubariz ad-Din Muhammad, was brought up at the Il-Khan's court but returned to Maibud upon the death of the Il-Khan Öljeitü. In around 1319 he overthrew the atabeg of Yazd and was subsequently recognized as governor of the city by the central Il-Khan government. Following this he began fighting against the Neguderis, a Mongol tribal group. He managed to face this crisis with a minimum of loss. :''Main article: Atar, Zoroastrian fire.'' thumb right 250px Tourists and burning fire in the Zoroastrian temple of Yazd (Image:Zoroastrian Fire Temple, Yazd.jpg), Iran So effective has been the windcatcher in Persian architecture that it has been routinely used as a refrigerating device (yakhchal) for ages. Many traditional water reservoirs (ab anbars) are built with windcatchers that are capable of storing water at near freezing temperatures for months in summer. The evaporative cooling effect is strongest in the driest climates, such as on the Iranian plateau, hence the ubiquitous use of these devices in drier areas such as Yazd, Kerman, Kashan, Sirjan, Nain (Nain, Iran), and Bam (Bam, Iran). This is especially visible in ab anbars that use windcatchers.
