Alan Dershowitz - Taking the Stand — at GW Jack Morton Auditorium
Nov 11 2013 7:00 pm
Nov 11 2013 8:00 pm
at GW Jack Morton Auditorium
805 21st Street NW
Metro: Foggy Bottom
From clerking for Supreme Court Justice Arthur Goldberg to becoming the youngest Harvard law professor at age 28 and on to his leading role in some of the most visible cases ever to come to court (he’s currently part of Julian Assange’s legal team), Dershowitz is one of the country’s bestknown lawyers. His memoir, In Taking the Stand (Crown, $28), recounts how he came to the law and how his views of many issues—censorship, abortion, the use of science as legal evidence—have changed over time. This event is part of The Newsmakers Series, co-sponsored with GW Lisner.
