Nadine Strossen - E.N. Thompson Forum on World Issues

Nadine Strossen - E.N. Thompson Forum on World Issues

Nadine Strossen expertly dissects Constitutional law to share current challenges to our civil liberties today, stimulating thoughtful consideration of democratic ideals. 

With her expert knowledge of the Constitution, Nadine is a unique and valuable resource for understanding the context behind policies and legislation that curtail civil liberties, such as freedom of speech. In her new book, HATE: Why We Should Resist It With Free Speech, Not Censorship, she explores how speech is protected under the constitution and how free speech can be used to counter hate speech.

Twice named one of “The 100 Most Influential Lawyers in America” by The National Law Journal, Nadine draws from her two decades as president of the American Civil Liberties Union and current post as professor at New York University law school to highlight the dangers that follow efforts to serve justice by limiting civil rights. She also offers useful and applicable strategies for achieving positive outcomes without violating Constitutional rights.
