Just launched: Campus antisemitism legal line

Hillel International joined other leading national Jewish organizations and world-renowned law firms to create a dedicated, free legal helpline for Jewish student and faculty impacted by antisemitism on campus, named the Campus Antisemitism Legal Line (CALL). 

With antisemitism in the US and on campus reaching all-time highs in the wake of the Oct. 7 terrorist attack on Israel, this new rescue comes at a critical moment for the Jewish community, and for Jewish college students and families. 

A legal team from Hillel International, the ADL, the Brandeis Center, and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP will direct volunteer lawyers from several law firms who will assess reports of antisemitic discrimination and hate, conduct information-gathering interviews, and provide pro bono representation for victims who choose to move forward with specific cases.

All legal services will be provided at no cost to students, faculty, families, and community members impacted by antisemitism. Request for legal assistance can be submitted through the website legal-protection.org, or by texting “CALLhelp” to 51555 to receive free, 24/7 support. By working together with our partners, Hillel aims to make this process as easy as possible for students and families seeking legal services and support.

Providing free legal support to Jewish students is just one of the many tools Hillel and our partners are providing during this challenging moment.
