This week on the legal-affairs podcast Lawyer2Lawyer, we feature interviews with two lawyers who each have new books out: Washington, D.C., lawyer Carolyn Elefant and Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz.

Elefant, author of the blog, is releasing her new book this month, Solo by Choice: How to Be the Lawyer You Always Wanted to Be. It is, she says, a book “dedicated to every lawyer who ever wanted to run the show but worried that going solo was career suicide.”

In the second half of the program, we talk to Professor Dershowitz about his new book, Finding Jefferson: A Lost Letter, a Remarkable Discovery, and the First Amendment in an Age of Terrorism, in which his chance discovery in an antiquarian bookstore leads him to a meditation on Jefferson’s views and his own on free speech in a time of terrorism.
