This week the Pack goes outside the world of finance. We are joined by constitutional scholar and Emeritus Professor of Law at Harvard, Alan Dershowitz (@alandersh on Twitter). Alan speaks freely and comfortably about a little bit of everything, his past, his beliefs, current events, past clients, the scourge of woke-ism and cancel-culture, the rough texture and dissonant tone of our times.

Alan Dershowitz has long been celebrated for his work in U.S. constitutional and criminal law. The youngest full professor ever at Harvard Law School, he taught from 1964 through 2013, where he was appointed as the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law in 1993. Dershowitz is a regular media contributor, political commentator, and legal analyst. Throughout his long career, he has written more than two-score books, at least one every year. His latest is coming soon, The Case For Color Blind Equality In The Age Of Identity Politics.

Dershowitz has always believed in maintaining his sharpness in the courtroom as well as classroom, and has always undertaken complex, high-profile, and often unpopular cases, causes, and clients. He has represented a long list of luminaries on both sides of popular sentiment, including Mike Tyson, Patty Hearst, Leona Helmsley, Julian Assange, Jim Bakker, O.J. Simpson, Jeffery Epstein, and Harvey Weinstein.

In 2018 he agreed to represent President Donald Trump, Dershowitz winning his latest landmark case. This and many of his recent pronouncements rubbed wrong the American Left, which had always been his fan-base, neighbors in New York, and social peers. What so many of them misunderstood, and what Alan explains so well in this wide-ranging conversation, is that he took and won the case in defense of the US Constitution, the protections and rights provided by which he sees as increasingly under dire threat from that same Left that once so warmly embraced and now so churlishly scorns him.

So often the great among us are left to walk alone... join the Pack as we keep this brilliant mind and brave man company for a while in comfortable conversation.
