Lowenstein Sandler has joined a group of 120 leading law firms in urging top law schools to denounce violence, harassment, and anti-Semitic rhetoric.
A letter signed by scores of Am Law 100 firms to deans of the top 14 law schools in the country called upon them to condemn anti-Israel protests and harassment as well as “anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism, or any other form of violence, hatred, or bigotry on your campuses, in our workplaces, or our communities.”
“We have been alarmed at reports of anti-Semitic harassment, vandalism and assaults on college campuses, including rallies calling for the death of Jews and the elimination of the State of Israel,” the letter states. “Such anti-Semitic activities would not be tolerated at any of our firms. As employers who recruit from each of your law schools, we look to you to ensure your students who hope to join our firms after graduation are prepared to be an active part of workplace communities that have zero tolerance policies for any form of discrimination or harassment, much less the kind that has been taking place on some law school campuses.”
