Hate: A Legal Symposium Exploring the Legal and Societal Consequences

The Pennsylvania Bar Association invites you to a special symposium exploring the legal and societal consequences of one of humanity’s darkest emotions, hate. The program series will examine the causes of hate; the differences between hate, discrimination and disagreement; laws that address hate and their limitations and criminal consequences; results of hate and how they can transfer to negative consequences for those outside the hated group; and the pros and cons of different methods available to counter hate.

In this first installment, which is co-sponsored by the Allegheny County Bar Association, the Philadelphia Bar Association, and the Brandeis Law Society, our distinguished panel will discuss the historical setting of antisemitism and its resurgence. Discussion will address how antisemitism affects society at large and is antithetical to the rule of law, while distinguishing between prejudice and healthy debate regarding religion and politics. The panelists will further explore how growing acts of antisemitism relate to other acts of violence and hate rhetoric, and what countermeasures are available through the legal system and are being employed by different groups.

Recorded in April 2023.
