Top law firm rescinds job offers to Ivy League students who signed letter blaming Israel for violence

Three Ivy League students who signed on to letters supporting Hamas against Israel have lost job offers from one of the top U.S. law firms.

Davis Polk rescinded letters of employment for three law students at Harvard and Columbia universities after the students signed on to open letters in support of Hamas amid the ongoing conflict with Israel, according to a report from NBC News.

The firm’s announcement came via an internal email that was later posted to social media, with chair and managing partner Neil Barr explaining that the statements in the letters are “simply contrary to our firm’s values.”

“For this reason and to ensure we continue to maintain a supportive and inclusive work environment, the student leaders responsible for signing on to these statements are no longer welcome in our firm; and their offers of employment have thus been rescinded,” the statement said.

The firm did not immediately respond to a Fox News Digital request for comment.
