Gornitzky represents Ben Gurion University before the Council for Higher Education

October 31st, 2012 Back to all news

Gornitzky's lawyers successfully argued, on behalf of Ben Gurion University in their appeal before the subcommittee of the Council for Higher Education, that the committee not prohibit students from enrolling in the political science department next year and thereby, in effect, close it down.

 

The subcommittee had come to their initial decision after the department had been criticized for being politically imbalanced and lacking certain professional standards. Gornitzky's lawyers claimed before the subcommittee that their recommendation to close the department was illegal and not within the scope of their authority.

 

Ben Gurion University was represented by Mr. Moriel Matalon (Managing Partner) and Mr. Ofer Fleischer.
