Students From 52 Law Schools Boycott Seward & Kissel's Recruitment Over Alleged Conflict in Donziger

“We, the undersigned law students, refuse to consider employment with the firm until it withdraws from its conflicted position as Chevron’s private prosecutor,” the student letter issued to Seward & Kissel's partnership says. Donziger, facing federal criminal contempt-of-court charges, helped win an $8.6 billion judgment against Chevron in Ecuador. He claims Chevron has been trying to "ruin" him since.
