JNS.org Alan Dershowitz, the famed law professor, vocal supporter of Israel, and civil liberties advocate, says that he is retiring from Harvard Law School.

“Yeah, I’m really retiring,” Dershowitz told the Boston Globe. “My retirement consists of reducing my schedule down to only about 10 things at any given time.”

A native of Brooklyn, Dershowitz, 75, first joined the Harvard law faculty in 1964 and quickly became the youngest full-time professor in the school’s history. In a career spanning nearly 50 years, Dershowitz is noted for his expert work in criminal and constitutional law, and made a household name for himself as a defense attorney for celebrities such as O.J. Simpson.

Dershowitz is the author of the New York Times bestseller “The Case for Israel,” and accused former U.S. president Jimmy Carter of anti-Israel bias for his controversial 2006 book “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid.”
