Nadine Strossen is a leading expert in constitutional law and human rights and former President of the American Civil Liberties Union who speaks on free speech, intellectual freedom and civil discourse.

A former national President of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and a constitutional law professor, she is a leading political liberal who advocates for classical liberal values. She is serving as host for a three-part PBS series about free speech, to air in 2023. 

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) and Washburn University (in Topeka) as their “Common Read” for all incoming students in 2019 and 2022, respectively. 

Strossen is a Senior Fellow with the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE), and she serves on the advisory boards of the ACLU, Academic Freedom Alliance, Heterodox Academy, the National Coalition Against Censorship, and the University of Austin. 

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).

When she 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.

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