Constitutional liberties have been under assault on many fronts over the last two years, from immigrants’ rights, to voting rights, to LGBTQ equality. David Cole, national legal director of the ACLU and a professor at Georgetown Law, will draw on experience from the last two years, as well as previous periods, to address the critical elements necessary to preserve liberty in our democracy.

David Cole supervises a network of nearly 2,000 attorneys and oversees more than 1,400 state and federal lawsuits. Cole has litigated extensively before the U.S. Supreme Court and has won important cases on immigration, free speech, education, and extrajudicial detentions. The George J. Mitchell Professor in Law and Public Policy at Georgetown, Cole is an influential essayist and the author of several award-winning books, including “Less Safe, Less Free” (2007), “Enemy Aliens” (2004) and “No Equal Justice” (2004).
