The Brandeis Center announced today that it will conduct an inaugural national law student leadership training conference in Los Angeles, California on January 2-3, 2014. This inaugural national law student conference coincides with the launch of the Center’s new Law Student Chapter Initiative. The conference will draw law student leaders together to exchange lessons on advancing civil and human rights. Key topics will include campus anti-Semitism, international law, human rights, and freedom of speech. Attorney mentors will also discuss career paths for law students interested in advancing the civil and human rights and combating campus anti-Semitism.
This announcement follows shortly upon the establishment of the first Brandeis Center law school chapters. This Fall, law student leaders have formed Brandeis Center chapters at UCLA School of Law and the American University’s Washington College of Law. Law students are also working to form Brandeis Center chapters at other law schools nationwide.
