For the past 12 years, Israeli activist attorney Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, as director of the Israel-based civil rights group, Shurat HaDin – Israel Law Center, has used “Lawfare” as its weapon of choice for bringing the fight against alleged international terrorist organizations, their leaders and financial patrons to the courtroom. Shurat HaDin currently represents hundreds of terror victims in lawsuits and legal actions, which allow these victims to fight back.

Join us for this unique lunch and learn presentation, where Nitsana Darshan-Leitner will discuss, among other things:

  • How Shurat HaDin stopped the second Gaza Flotilla in June 2010; and
  • Shurat HaDin’s February 2015 $218M federal civil court judgment against the Palestine Liberation Organization and Palestinian Authority for a string of attacks from 2001 to 2004.

We invite you to read more about the many international and Israeli cases in which Shurat HaDin (which means “Letter of the Law”) has taken legal action on behalf of victims of terrorist acts. Click here.

A kosher lunch will be served.

Nitsana Darshan-Leitner has become the undisputed leader of the fight against alleged terrorist organizations in the courtroom as well as a beacon of hope for terror victims throughout the world. She received her law degree from Israel’s Bar-Ilan University, and received an MBA from the UK’s Manchester University. Ms. Darshan-Leitner has been recognized and lauded as a pioneer in the judicial battle against terrorism by a number of publications and organizations, including being named one of the 50 Most Influential Jewish People in 2014 by the Jerusalem Post and as one of the Top 10 Living Jewish Women Role Models in 2015 by the Algemeiner.
