Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, New York City, NY, and CUNY Law School, Queens, NY
LDB’s Director of Legal Initiatives, Aviva Vogelstein, will address the LDB chapter at her law school alma mater, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, on September 25, 2017 from 12-1pm. Later in the day, she will address LDB law students at the City University of New York (CUNY) Law School from 4-6pm. Vogelstein’s talks will focus on fighting anti-Semitism through the law, including the “new” anti-Semitism – anti-Semitism masked as anti-Israelism – on college and university campuses. Vogelstein graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2010, magna cum laude, with a BA in American History, and from Cardozo in 2013. During law school, Aviva served as Notes Editor for Cardozo’s Journal of Conflict Resolution, one of the world’s preeminent legal journals of arbitration, negotiation and mediation, and was a fellow in Cardozo’s Bet Tzedek Legal Services Clinic. Since joining the Brandeis Center in 2014, Aviva’s work has focused on combating the resurgence of anti-Semitism on American university campuses through legal and public policy approaches, and growing LDB’s law student chapter initiative. Aviva currently speaks and presents to a wide variety of audiences at law schools, high schools, synagogues, and community organizations.
