He received his education at the Unter-Realschule of his native town, and in deference to the wish of his father became a teacher at the Jüdische Hauptschule. Duschenes went in 1867 to the University of Vienna, whence he was graduated as doctor of law in l871. Returning to Prague, he was (1878) admitted to the bar and engaged in practise. He retired from professional life in 1899.
Duschenes, with Wenzel, Ritter von Belsky, and Carl Baretta, edited from 1890 the "Oesterreichisches Rechts-Lexikon," published in Prague, which was also translated into Bohemian. He took an active part in the councils of the Jewish community and in the political life of Prague.
