St. Thomas Law Students Recognized at Anti-Defamation League Awards 

On November 30, 2012, three St. Thomas Law students were recognized at the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) Miami Jurisprudence Awards Luncheon for their participation in the 2012 ADL Summer Associate Research Program. As ADL Summer Associates, these students researched and wrote memoranda on legal questions presented by the ADL. The questions presented were based on current social and legal issues and were meant to advance the ADL’s mission of fighting bigotry and discrimination. Third-year student Isabella Poschl’s memorandum addressed the constitutionality of public school dress codes prohibiting non-conforming attire. Yanina Zilberman, also a third-year student, wrote a memorandum analyzing whether the drawing of swastikas in maple syrup on the walkway and front door of a residential home qualifies as a hate crime under Florida Law. Keila Weekes, a December 2012 graduate, wrote a memorandum addressing whether a private school’s receipt of federal funds subjects it to federal regulation as to anti-bullying policies.

Each of the memoranda were published by the ADL, and the publication was distributed at the Awards Luncheon, which was attended by the ADL community, program participants, and some of the top law firms of the state.
