Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law

Currently Active

Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law (LDB) is an independent, non-partisan institution for public interest advocacy, research, and education. The Center's mission is to advance the civil and human rights of the Jewish people and to promote justice for all.

The civil and human rights of the Jewish people are inextricably bound to the pursuit of justice for all peoples. LDB promotes justice for all as a means of securing the rights of the Jewish people and secures the rights of the Jewish people as a means of advancing justice for all. In the Twenty-first Century, the leading civil and human rights challenge facing North American Jewry is the resurgent problem of anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism on university campuses. This social problem requires an immediate, effective, and coordinated legal response. LDB will provide the research resources, public policy education, and legal advocacy needed to fight this battle within the broader context of the pursuit of universal principles of justice.

The Law School Chapter of the Brandeis Center brings speakers and scholars to campus in order to achieve the mission of the national organization. It also serves to promote advocacy for Israel by encouraging dialogue and academic discourse.
