UC Berkeley Law groups maintain antisemitic ban despite widespread condemnation

Nine student groups at the University of California at Berkeley law school have publicly banned pro-Israel speakers, effectively creating Jew-free zones on campus, according to The Jewish Journal. Despite widespread condemnation, the groups have not backed down.

The groups signed on to a bylaw introduced by Berkeley Law Students for Justice in Palestine at the beginning of the academic year that bans speakers who support “Zionism, the apartheid state of Israel, and the occupation of Palestine,” according to the Times of Israel.


But the pressure both locally and nationally has been easy for the students responsible to avoid. The groups — which include the Berkeley Law Muslim Student Association, Middle Eastern and North African Law Students Association, Womxn of Color Collective, Asian Pacific Law Students Association, Queer Caucus, Women of Berkeley Law, Law Students of African Descent, and Community Defense Project, in addition to the aforementioned Berkeley Law Students for Justice in Palestine — have not made the names of their officers public. The UC Berkeley website backs them up by requiring a student login to be able to view their names.
