I have been a member of ACS since I was a law student. They proved to be an invaluable resource for networking and mentoring. Now that I'm a young lawyer, I continue to enjoy their timely events about cutting-edge legal issues, as well as their thoughtful blog articles, newsletters, and issue briefs.

The American Constitution Society (ACS) is an invaluable resource for the legal community. I’ve been a student chapter leader for two years. I first joined this organization because it was one of the only organizations that encouraged constitutional scholarship and dialogue. Ever since, I have been an active member, helping bring speakers to the law school, organizing events on campus, and attending student conferences. ACS has been phenomenal at every step. Every year, ACS sets up great programming for students on constitutional issues. ACS also sponsors student conferences and organizes academic writing and moot court contests that ensure students stay connected to the larger legal community. Ultimately, because of ACS proactive progressive students and lawyers have a chance to shape constitutional debate and promote progressive ideas.

Congress is the American Constituent Assembly.According to the Constitutional experts,American Congress is the greatest & strongest constituent Assembly.American Congress has 2 houses Senate & the House of Representatives.
American Senate is the only strongest upper house in the word.It is
consists of 100 candidates.Each state elects its 2 senators for 6 years.Senate is a regular & permanent institution.It was established in 1789,in America.1/3 senators retired after every 2 years.Experienced senators have great importance,this is why,a senator can elect many times.If a senator dies or his seat is vacant due to any reason,the Governor of that state can chooses a senator at that seat & he becomes a senator till the new elections come.The senators are elected directly from 1913, through the 17th amendment.
The constitution created a new post of "President Pro Tempore" In 1977.The senator Hemfree was elected first time for this post.President Pro Tempore is the fourth strongest post after the President,Vice President & the Speaker in America.
The House of Representative (the lower house) has 435 candidates and are elected for 2 years .This house has limited tenure in the world.

I have been involved with ACS for about 5 years. In my experience, ACS has been a great organization that has helped me in countless ways!
First, ACS hosts all kinds of great speakers and events across the country, which provides good intellectual stimulation and academic debate. Second,
ACS has many fantastic members in a variety of different positions, which allows for great networking opportunities. ACS has a lot to offer, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a progressive legal organization to join!

My job search. I had one employer tell me that he gave me an interview because I had involvement with ACS on my resume. In another situation I had an ACS member that I had met at a happy hour call me to inform me of a job opening he thought I would be interested in.

For over a year, American Constitution Society has had a huge role in my career as a law student. As a student group leader, and a chapter member, I've taken part in all the various events ACS National as to offer. It has opened doors for me, and has lead to new opportunities, i.e. friendships, networking contacts, jobs. I am very proud to be a part of this organization.

Increase overhead. Create a bigger, central team in the DC office, with designated individuals assigned to student chapters to make sure each chapter is on track and delivering goals. I would do a complete overhaul of the website as well. The chapter pages are not very user-friendly and lacks dynamics.

I have been involved in our law school chapter of ACS since my 1L year. Our chapter plays a very important role in informing the law school community and the general public about some of the most pressing legal issues facing our country. After attending our events, many students feel inspired that the law can and should be a positive agent of change.

Prior to entering law school, I attended part of one of the first national conferences. At that point, I knew that the organization was poised to take a leadership role in this space and the progressive vision of the organization was vital. When I entered law school in 2004, there was no student chapter and I then decided to found the school's chapter. Since then, I have attended nearly all subsequent national conferences and still stay involved in my city's Lawyer Chapter by serving on the Steering Committee. It is a FANTASTIC organization that I appreciate for it's intellectual leadership, great organization, supportive networks and national reach.

By participating in national conferences, I've expanded my knowledge base in areas of interest. Based upon my student and lawyer chapter experiences, I've also learned significant leadership skills that I have transferred to other areas of my career.

I was introduced to ACS in law school. Our school chapter hosted great speeches and debates. Since graduating in 2009, I have become even more involved in my local lawyer chapter. The local chapter offers great volunteer opportunities and hosts networking events, where I can meet like-minded public interest attorneys. I was fortunate enough to receive a fellowship for the ACS National Convention last summer, and I was blown away by the exciting program. The convention featured interesting panels and fascinating speakers, like Newark Mayor Cory Booker and Senator Al Franken. ACS does a great job of keeping lawyers engaged in broader social and political issues.
