A complaint filed with the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights against University of California, Berkeley Law School, claiming discrimination over the August decision of at least nine student groups to adopt a bylaw excluding Zionist speakers, has been made public, and the school’s dean has promised to cooperate with the resulting investigation.

Gabriel Groisman, a Florida-based attorney and partner at LSN Law, and Arsen Ostrovsky, an Israel-based attorney and CEO of The International Legal Forum, submitted the joint complaint alleging that the bylaw represents “profound and deep-seated antisemitic discrimination” against Jewish students, faculty and staff at UC Berkeley Law School, according to a press release from Groisman and Ostrovsky emailed to Law.com.
