Israeli NGO hosts 70 lawyers from 7 countries in conference to counteract BDS

Shurat Hadin-Israel Law Center on Monday opened a 2015 Activist Lawyers’ Training Task Force in Jerusalem as part of an intensive week-long program to equip around 70 lawyers from seven countries with the tactical tools and broader courtroom strategies “to…counter the increasingly virulent legal efforts of the Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions (BDS) movement.”

A statement by Shurat Hadin said that, “The seminar program includes cutting-edge lectures and hands-on workshops taught by the most prominent scholars and experts in the field including Alan Dershowitz and Irwin Cotler as well as Kent Yalowitz and other accomplished jurists involved in legal activism.”

Lawyers and law professors are attending from the US, Singapore, Holland, South Africa, Germany, Canada and Belgium.
