After October 7th there has been widespread disappointment in the way universities have chosen to respond to Hamas’s horrific attacks on innocent Israeli civilians as well as the mounting evidence that anti-Semitism that has been festering on campuses for years is reaching a breaking point. From alumni, major donors, prospective employers, and the general public, universities are being called out for their inability to take a strong stance against terrorism as well as the killing of innocent Israelis. All of this combined has brought up many legal questions regarding free speech, hostile environments, harassment, political retaliation, equal protection, and discrimination. Cherise is joined by Professor David E. Bernstein of George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School to discuss these legal questions as well as tease out areas that still lack clarity.
