Liz Murrill, the Solicitor General for the State of Louisiana, has been married for 30 years, raised four boys, and is an eighth-generation Louisianan. Born in New Orleans and raised in Lafayette, she graduated from Lafayette High School then attended LSU, where she graduated in 1985 with a Journalism degree. Liz graduated from LSU’s Paul M. Hebert School of Law in 1991, and was the Editor-in-Chief of the Louisiana Law Review during her senior year. She also obtained a Master of Laws degree in 2010 from Pepperdine University Law School and was a United States Supreme Court Fellow in 2007-08.
Liz’s work experience protecting Louisiana and its residents is unmatched. As Solicitor General, she has spent the last six years defending Louisiana and its laws in some of the most important cases in the country, both in state and federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court. She has fought to keep convicted criminals in prison, advocated for the unborn, and fought tirelessly against federal overreach and invasive mandates. She is respected by state and federal judges and considered a leader among her peers around the country. Other candidates can only talk about what they will do if elected. Liz has actually been doing all of those things every day for the last six years.
Liz has also devoted herself to making her community a better place to live. She served as a volunteer Den Leader and Cubmaster for her sons’ Cub Scout pack. As a crisis-line volunteer for the Zolta House Battered Women’s Shelter, she helped female victims of domestic abuse. She has served as a board member for Family Services of Baton Rouge and established the Baton Rouge Bar Association Disaster Recovery Legal Service Project, which provided free legal services to people who lost their homes during Hurricane Katrina. She also helped spearhead her church’s relief efforts in the wake of that devastating storm.
