The Minerva Center for Human Rights at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Faculty of Law is thrilled to announce the establishment of the Bob and Sally Shafton Memorial Distinguished Visiting Scholar Series. The annual series is made possible by a generous gift to the Center from the Levenfeld family of Jerusalem in honor of their parents/grandparents, the late Bob and Sally Shafton of Los Angeles - and will enable the Center to annually host a prominent human rights scholar from the Los Angeles area for teaching, seminars and public lectures at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
We invite you to the inauguration of the Shafton Memorial Series at the Hebrew University’s Mount Scopus campus on Wednesday, December 18, 2019, at 16:30, featuring a public lecture by our first Shafton Distinguished Visiting Scholar, Prof. Jennifer Chacón of UCLA School of Law, on the criminalization of immigration in the U.S. and beyond. The evening will also include remarks by retired Israeli Supreme Court Justice Ayala Procaccia; by the Dean of the Hebrew University Faculty of Law, Prof. Daphna Lewinsohn-Zamir; by Jill Shafton Levenfeld on behalf of the family; and by the Academic Director of the Minerva Center for Human Rights, Prof. Tomer Broude.
