Distinguished US constitutional expert and former Harvard University Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz has a stark warning for Australia in this in-depth interview with Damian Coory: reject the cancel culture nonsense of the US and modern ‘woke’ identity politics and keep the law and politics separate. A self-proclaimed liberal Democratic Party voter, Prof Dershowitx, now 84, taught at the Ivy League school from 1964 to 2013. He has represented such celebrity clients as Mike Tyson,, Julian Assange, and Bill Clinton, he advised on the O. J. Simpson, trial and was a member of President Donald Trump's defense team in his first impeachment trial in 2020.
Professor Dershowitz joins us from New York and – among more serious matters - explains why he lost one of his best friends, comedian and Seinfeld creator, Larry David.
