Waltham, Mass. -- Brandeis University has suspended its partnership with the West Bank’s Al-Quds University in light of recent events at the Palestinian school, including a Nazi-style demonstration on its main campus in Jerusalem.
With endowment falling and various controversies afoot, GW Law School dean will look to bolster financial aid.
Growing up in Port Washington, L.I., Frederick Lawrence thought he’d have a career in politics or teaching.
But in high school, animated by the civil rights and anti-war movements and inspired by the role attorneys were playing as agents “of social change,” he decided to become a lawyer.
Some four decades later, after working as a civil rights lawyer and law school dean, Lawrence is taking a position at the highest rung of academia.
