Ms. Cory Isaacson

ACLU of Georgia

Cory Isaacson recently joined the ACLU of Georgia from the Georgia Resource Center, where she represented people on Georgia’s death row in state and federal habeas proceedings. Prior to the Resource Center, Cory was an attorney at Georgia Justice Project, where she represented people facing barriers to employment and housing because of their criminal history and advocated for reforms to Georgia’s expungement laws in the state legislature. 

Cory began her legal career as an attorney and clinical supervisor in the Youth Defender Clinic at the East Bay Community Law Center, part of the clinical program at UC Berkeley School of Law. In that position, she represented young people in juvenile court and in school discipline proceedings and supervised law students working on those cases.

Born in Atlanta and raised in Savannah, Cory and her husband returned to Atlanta in 2016, where they live with their three children. Cory is a graduate of UC Berkeley School of Law.
