Nadine Strossen is a leading expert in constitutional law and human rights and former President of the American Civil Liberties Union.

As the immediate past President of the American Civil Liberties Union (1991-2008), she now serves on the advisory boards of EPIC (the Electronic Privacy Information Center), FIRE (the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education), and Heterodox Academy. When Strossen stepped down as ACLU President, three (ideologically diverse) Supreme Court Justices participated in her farewell/tribute luncheon: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Antonin Scalia, and David Souter.

The National Law Journal has named Strossen one of America’s “100 Most Influential Lawyers,” and several other publications have named her one of the country’s most influential women. Her many honorary degrees and awards include the American Bar Association’s prestigious Margaret Brent Women Lawyers of Achievement Award (2017).

Strossen has made thousands of public presentations before diverse audiences around the world, including on more than 500 campuses. A frequent media commentator, she has published widely in both academic and general interest publications. 

Her 2018 book, HATE: Why We Should Resist it With Free Speech, Not Censorship, has earned praise from ideologically diverse experts, including progressive Harvard University Professor Cornel West and conservative Princeton University Professor Robert George. HATE was selected by Washington University (in St. Louis) as its 2019 “Common Read” for all incoming students. Her earlier book, Defending Pornography: Free Speech, Sex, and the Fight for Women’s Rights, was named a New York Times “notable book” of 1995. In 2020, she published an updated paperback edition with new Epilogue focusing on social media.
