Seyfarth joined a group of dozens of Am Law 100 law firms that have sent a letter to the deans of top-ranked US law schools. The letter expressed concern over recent reports of targeted anti-Semitic harassment and threats of violence on law school campuses, and urged the deans to take an “unequivocal stance” against such activities.
Bias of any kind has no place in law firms, or in society. As the letter reads, “There is no room for anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism or any other form of violence, hatred or bigotry on your campuses, in our workplaces or our communities.”
In an email to Seyfarth employees about the letter to the deans, firm Chair Lorie Almon noted: “We are proud that at Seyfarth, we truly live our core values and strive to create an environment where everyone belongs, and can feel safe and respected.”
