Strossen’s lecture “Defending Rights for All – Controversies Surrounding Liberty” will focus on important issues such as the criminal justice system, free speech concerns, campus sexual misconduct, as well as constitutional principles. This lecture will be a great follow-up to the issues discussed during this year’s Hancock Symposium.

She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Harvard, and magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, where she was the editor of the Harvard Law Review. After practicing law for nine years, she became a professor at New York Law School. From 1991 to 2008, Strossen was elected the first female and youngest president of the ACLU.
