AlAn Dershowitz P

2011-12 Adelson Educational Campus

rofessor Alan M. Dershowitz of Harvard Law School has been described by Newsweek as "one of (the nation's) most distinguished defenders of individual rights." Business Week described him as "a feisty civil libertarian and one of the nation's most prominent legal educators." The Forward called him, "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." He has been included on lists of America's most influential and successful lawyers as well as of influential Jews. Dershowitz is the author of 27 non-fiction works and two novels. He has advised presidents, United Nations officials, prime ministers, governors, senators, and members of Congress as well as business leaders about legal and political issues. He has also represented and consulted with major media companies on free-speech issues. In 1983, the Anti-Defamation League of 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." Rabbi Irving Greenberg included Dershowitz, along with Wiesel, as prime examples of "modern-day rabbis" who teach Torah in a secular context. As an unwavering advocate and defender of world Jewry and the State of Israel, we are proud to award Mr. Dershowitz with the 7th Annual Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson In Pursuit of Excellence Award.
