September 18-19, 2017
University of St. Thomas School of Law and University of Minnesota Law School
LDB’s Director of Legal Initiatives, Aviva Vogelstein, will meet with and speak to students at the LDB chapters at the University of St. Thomas School of Law and University of Minnesota Law School, on September 18 and September 19, respectively. Her 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 Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law 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.
