Louis D. Brandeis Center Law Student Chapter
The Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights (LDB) is an independent, nonprofit organization established in 2011 to protect the civil and human rights of the Jewish people and promote justice for all. LDB is committed to combating anti-Semitism on college and university campuses. In 2013, the LDB launched its pilot program of chapters for law students who support its mission. The LDB chapter at UST School of Law was established in 2014.
LDB students have the opportunity to engage directly in legal and policy issues that arise. The LDB chapter hosts speaker events, lead discussions and host advocacy-oriented training sessions. Topics include Jewish civil rights advocacy, campus anti-Semitism, international human rights law, Israel legal advocacy, counter-terrorism legal policy and more! LDB provides students with pro bono research opportunities, and information about clerkship, fellowships and other job opportunities.
In 2016, LDB merged with the Jewish Law Student Association.
