An Evening with Alan Dershowitz

Abraham: The World's First (But Certainly Not Last) Jewish Lawyer

Abraham_2-20One of the world’s best-known attorneys Alan M. Dershowitz returns to Greenwich on Tuesday, Dec. 1, at 7:30 p.m., following the UJA Greenwich annual meeting at 7, at the Greenwich Library, Cole Auditorium, 101 West Putnam Avenue.

Courtesy of UJA & JCC Greenwich, Dershowitz will deliver a no-holds-barred history of Jewish lawyers: from the biblical Abraham, who argued with God on behalf of the doomed sinners of Sodom, through modern-day advocates who have changed the world by challenging the status quo, defending the unpopular, contributing to the rule of law, and following the biblical command to pursue justice.

Alan M. Dershowitz is the New York Times best-selling author of more than 30 books, and has been a consultant to several presidential commissions, advised presidents, UN officials, prime ministers, governors, senators and members of Congress. His articles have appeared in hundreds of publications, including The New York Times Magazine, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, Harvard Law Review, and The Yale Law Journal. He is the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Emeritus, at Harvard Law School, and has worked for more than fifty years in the areas of civil liberties, human rights, and criminal law.
