Marjorie Esman
ACLU of Louisiana

Marjorie R. Esman has been Executive Director of the ACLU of Louisiana since September 2007, after twenty years in the private practice of law. Her law practice focused on copyright and trademark issues, as well as First Amendment litigation concerning the freedom of speech and religion. She was a member of the ACLU of Louisiana board of directors from 1995 and the ACLU National Board from 1997, until she resigned both positions to become Executive Director.

Since taking the helm of the ACLU, she has increased the full-time staff from four to six, expanded its lobbying presence in Baton Rouge, and added part-time field staff in Shreveport and Baton Rouge.

In addition to her law degree (Tulane 1987), Esman holds an undergraduate degree from Cornell University and a Ph.D. in Anthropology from Tulane University (1981) and has taught at Tulane, LSU, and the University of Southwestern Louisiana (now the University of Louisiana at Lafayette). She serves on the board of Parkway Partners, a New Orleans organization dedicated to restoring and preserving the green spaces in the city of New Orleans.
