Proactive steps were taken by Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C. (Mintz) in response to a series of troubling anti-Semitic incidents on college campuses. Mintz has reinforced its commitment to maintaining a workplace environment where respect is paramount and harassment is not tolerated.
This position comes as a response to recent reports of rallies and activities on university grounds that have been charged with anti-Semitic sentiments, including calls for violence against Jewish individuals and the State of Israel. Mintz has made it clear that any such behavior is completely unacceptable and directly opposes the values upheld by their firm.
Mintz emphasizes the importance of an inclusive environment, not only within their own operations but also in the legal sector at large. As recruiters of law school graduates, the firm holds a standard that future lawyers should be ready to contribute positively to communities that strictly prohibit discrimination and harassment. The firm’s stance is not just a policy but a declaration of their foundational values, advocating for a legal community that stands against bigotry and upholds dignity for all.
