LDB Launches Newest Law Student Chapter at Case Western
September 26, 2017

LDB is pleased to officially launch its newest law student chapter at CWRU Law School! The LDB law students at CWRU will help respond to anti-Semitic incidents should they arise on their own campus or in their region, and will hold educational panels and events on topics such as legal strategies to combat anti-semitism, civil rights laws in the U.S., international human rights law, and more. LDB’s Director of Legal Initiatives Aviva Vogelstein will travel to Cleveland on September 26 to address the new chapter from 12-1pm. Vogelstein will discuss the various opportunities that LDB can offer CWRU law students, and will discuss LDB's work in fighting anti-Semitism through the law. 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.

and Reports
Over 50% of Jewish American college students report that they experienced or witnessed anti-Semitism on their campuses during the 2013-2014 academic year. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has announced that campus anti-Semitism “is a serious problem which warrants further attention.” Campus anti-Semitism can include subjecting Jewish students to different treatment, harassment, violence or a hostile environment. In some cases, campus anti-Semitism is related to anti-Israel sentiment. In other cases, it is not. For most purposes, we define anti-Semitism according to the U.S. Department of State definition of anti-Semitism. .
