Nation’s Prominent Plaintiff-Side Law Firms Unite Against the “Appalling Rise” of Antisemitism Across Law School and College Campuses

Dear Law School Dean:

We write to you on behalf of several of the largest and most successful plaintiff-side law firms in the world. As firms representing workers, consumers, investors, the injured, and victims of discrimination, fraud, and human rights abuses, we regularly recruit law students committed to social justice.

As such, we depend upon and consider ourselves partners with law schools in preparing and then mentoring new attorneys to be exceptional litigators and morally grounded advocates for justice.

In the weeks following the horrific October 7 attack by the terrorist group Hamas on thousands of innocent civilians in Israel—including the torture, rape, and mutilation of infants, children, women, and the elderly, more than 200 of whom remain hostages—we have witnessed an appalling rise in support among law students and student organizations for the actions of Hamas, for attacks against Jewish students and gathering places, and for the destruction of the State of Israel.

Law students and professors expressing support for Hamas or similar terrorist groups, for violence against Jews, or for the destruction of Israel would not be welcome at our firms. Such views are antithetical to our support and legal advocacy for human rights recognized by all civilized peoples and for the right of Israel to exist. We condemn hatred and racism directed against any group of people.

We ask you to ensure the safety of Jewish law students and to condemn without qualification this rising antisemitism. We also ask that you investigate and, if appropriate, take disciplinary action against any faculty or employees of your institutions that make statements or take actions that promote antisemitism or create a hostile campus environment in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
