Philip Drucker is a recently retired attorney who graduated from UCLA with a BA in Fine Art. Rather than become a starving artist, he went back to the safe-haven of higher education and in 1999 earned his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of La Verne.
In 2001, already disillusioned with the practice of law, his interest in genuinely helping people in need led again him back to education. Finally giving up and accepting his fate, Professor Drucker (who later became known as Dean D. (that’s Dean as in educational title, not a change of first name) devoted more and more time in the classroom where he continues to teach Constitutional Law. Currently, he is teaching at the California Desert Trial Academy in sunny Indio, CA.
Always interested in the inner workings (or not workings) of politics, in 2014 he ran for California State Senator, 28th District. As the highest vote recipient for the Democratic party, he enjoys the title of ex-officio and all the non-benefits that go with a failed candidacy.
Today, Philip is an author and columnist writing the Today’s Rant political column for the LA Free Press.
He also routinely gives lectures and presentations on politics and the Constitution.
He lives quietly at home with his wife and two corgis, Ein (he’s a Cowboy Bebop fan) and Aero. He enjoys candlelight dinners, long walks on the beach, and foreign romantic comedies that are neither romantic nor funny. You can reach him directly at . He might even answer. If he’s in a good mood. Or not. Depends. But probably. Hint: Buy him a cup of coffee and he’ll tell you his life story.
