Yesterday I spotted on social media the letter shown below from two dozen top law firms (“big law,” as they are sometimes called) addressed to law school deans telling them to get a grip on the anti-Semitism that they have let run rampant at their schools. I was not able to verify its authenticity so I refrained from posting it, but the New York Times reports on it this morning, and it’s real. The Times:
With universities across the United States grappling with a rise in antisemitism since the start of the Israel-Hamas war, elite law firms are putting schools on notice. In a letter to some of the nation’s top law schools obtained by DealBook, about two dozen major Wall Street firms warned that what happens on campus could have corporate consequences.
