Alan Dershowitz

Professor Alan M. Dershowitz is a Brooklyn 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," "the top lawyer of last resort," "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." Professor Dershowitz, a graduate of Brooklyn College and Yale Law School, joined the Harvard Law School faculty at age 25 after clerking for Judge David Bazelon and Justice Arthur Goldberg. Until his retirement from teaching in 2013, he was the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at Harvard Law School.
