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.

The Great!

I have been involved with ACS since my first year of law school. It's such a terrific organization! ACS significantly enhanced my law school experience, showing me the importance of learning about and remaining involved in constitutional issues. It added much-needed depth and realism to my academic experience! I have also met some terrific and inspiring people through ACS, and have learned about issues I never previously thought about. It's a great organization to remain active in even after law school.

ACS became a tremendous force at Howard University School of Law and really got the students thinking about constitutional issues

make them more vigilant about getting members to renew their dues. ACS is so enthusiastic about getting people interested and involved (which is great), that it tends to neglect some of the more mundane things, like sending out reminders to members to get them to pay their dues

They've done a great job making sure that the true meaning, and the way to interpret the constitution, is known. Their student organizations help to frame the debates on campus, and their social events for attorneys engage the whole community

I'm a first-year law student, and I've found ACS to be enormously helpful and informative. I've learned a lot from the different speakers brought in to talk about very relevant, current issues in today's legal sphere, and it's been great to meet other progressive students.

I am second year law student and co-president of my law school's chapter of ACS and I can't even begin to describe how much support - both financially and programitcally - I receive from the ACS national office. Besides the obvious plus of helping to fund our on campus events ACS' staff is always there to help students find speakers for their programs and connect students with lawyers in their area.
Having such a strong commitment to bringing as many law students as possible to the annual convention in DC is just one testament to ACS commitment to mentoring the next generation of lawyers.

I'm a third-year law student, and I'm very grateful for the American Constitution Society's efforts in law schools. Through the high-quality speakers ACS has brought to my campus, and through the opportunities that ACS has provided for me to attend national conferences, I've greatly expanded my knowledge of the Constitution and the important legal issues our country currently faces. ACS has greatly enriched my education.

My understanding of the Constitution and it's application to modern issues has been greatly enhanced by ACS. I've also had the opportunity to meet and discuss issues with some of the brightest legal minds on our country because of ACS' campus programs.

Expand it's reach into other campuses and other lawyer chapters.

I became involved with ACS at Penn Law School in my first year, going on to be the Speaker's Chair and President of our ACS chapter. In the law school community, ACS has quickly become the premier progressive legal policy and advocacy organization. Our chapter puts on dozens of unique events each year that bring students together to discuss and learn more about many of the important issues facing our country. ACS members immediately become part of a larger community of individuals with similar interests and goals, making it a great networking opportunity and a place for professional development.

ACS helps shape public legal debates by publishing timely articles, blog posts, issue briefs and other literature on important areas of the law. ACS also provides areas for students and professionals to hone and publish their work, through their national moot court competition and writing competitions.

Worked with the national organization to put on many quality events over the years, including our annual Supreme Court Review and Preview and Federal Judges Panels. A full list of our events can be found at http://www.law.upenn.edu/groups/acs/events.html. I also went to the Constitution in 2020 symposium at Yale Law School, the National Student Symposium at Penn Law School, and the National Convention in Washington, DC, where I expanded my network and made many valuable professional connections.
