About our Speaker: Alan Dershowitz
Alan M. Dershowitz is a Brooklyn, NY native who has been called “the nation’s most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer” and one of its “most distinguished defenders of individual rights,” “the best-known criminal lawyer in the world, “America’s most public Jewish defender” and “Israel’s single most visible defender – the Jewish state’s lead attorney in the court of public opinion.”
Dershowitz, the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Emeritus, joined the Harvard Law School faculty at age 25 after clerking for Judge David Bazelon and Justice Arthur Goldberg and quickly became the youngest tenured full professor in the school's history. Professor Dershowitz is the author of more than 35 fiction and non-fiction works with a worldwide audience. His titles include The Case For Israel; The Case For Peace; Chutzpah; Rights From Wrong; Preemption, Blasphemy: How the Religious Right is Hijacking the Declaration of Independence; and exceptional, action-packed novels like The Trials of Zion; and Just Revenge as well as recent works written for timely purposes such as a guide for voting in the 2016 US election aptly titled Electile Dysfunction, a Guide for the Unaroused Voter; The Case Against the Iran Deal; and Terror Tunnels: The Case for Israel's Just War Against Hamas; books with Jewish themes such as Abraham: The World's First (But Certainly Not Last) Jewish Lawyer ; and The Genesis of Justice: Ten Stories of Biblical Injustice that Led to the Ten Commandments and Modern Law; and his autobiography Taking the Stand: My Life in the Law.
Prof. Dershowitz has received numerous honors. In 1983, the Anti-Defamation League of the B'nai B'rith presented him with the William O. Douglas First Amendment Award for his "compassionate eloquent leadership and persistent advocacy in the struggle for civil and human rights." In presenting the award, Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel said: "If there had been a few people like Alan Dershowitz during the 1930s and 1940s, the history of European Jewry might have been different."
