If you are a lawyer, or in the business of talking to lawyers, and you have not read a book by Harvard don Alan Dershowitz then, ‘shame on you’. Not only are they insightful of the criminal justice system but they are a damn fine entertaining read. Further, Dershowitz never fails to give some commentary on the ethical dimensions of a lawyer’s work. I have only read a few of his 21 books, this book Letters to a young lawyer being his 22nd, and I have always finished the books I have read pondering the ethical quandaries that he is frequently confronted with and how best to handle them.
