Some 70 attorneys from around the world arrived in Israel over the weekend to attend a special seminar hosted by Shurat Hadin, the Israel Law Center organization, on how best to fight the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement and lawfare efforts against Israel worldwide.
The seminar, scheduled to take place between June 29 and July 5, will feature lectures on combating BDS and other anti-Semitic movements, fighting terrorism sponsoring, litigation on behalf of terror victims, and defending Israeli soldiers against allegations of war crimes.
Attorneys from the United States, Singapore, the Netherlands, South Africa, Germany, Canada and Belgium, among other countries, volunteered to attend the seminar, and pledged to represent Israeli interests for free if called upon.
Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, founder and director of Shurat Hadin, said the training offered in the seminar will enable participants to “mount legal battles against those trying to slander and undermine Israel.”
