ACS is a power house of legal analysis offering candid insight into the workings of our courts, government and communities. Their 2014 annual convention presented many panels on relevant legal issues provoking thoughtful discussions for everyone present. Their staff did an amazing job of bringing everyone and everything together all while making it appear effortless.

I had the privilege of working at ACS after graduating from law school, so I was able to see firsthand how dedicated the staff and the entire organization is to advancing liberalism in the legal sphere. There are any number of groups that pursue specific policies or bring people together to accomplish X, Y, or Z, but ACS really has developed a network of attorneys that can be deployed to do either/or of those two things. Obviously, ACS provides a lot of good networking opportunities, particularly in a profession that lives by networking, but it's programming is top-notch, if more people paid attention.

I became a member of ACS last year, in preparation for attending the ACS Convention. I had attended events put on by my local chapter, and wanted to get more involved, because I felt that the mission of the group aligned well with my personal and professional focus on justice and progressive legal practice. Now, I am a member of my local chapter's Executive Committee, and attending the convention made me even more excited about my new role. The ACS Convention was inspiring, thought-provoking, and an excellent networking opportunity. I constantly find myself telling stories about people I heard and things I learned there, because so much of it was timely and applicable to my work. It also gave me and my fellow Executive Committee members great ideas for programming for our local chapter. I am really thankful that ACS exists in this time of political impasse and judicial retrenchment, and I look forward to continuing to work with the national organization.

I am glad ACS is out there to provide a balanced alternative to the extreme conservative views that sometimes threaten to overwhelm important legal and public policy debates. ACS' informative articles and publications keep me up to date on vital constitutional issues as well as those related to my legal practice area. I also have been impressed with the equally wide range of educational and development programming ACS offers. I highly recommend them as a resource for other progressive attorneys or anyone who cares about the Constitution and the continued existence of a federal court system that makes decisions based on reason rather than ideology.

ACS is an excellent, young organization that provides much needed balance to the legal debate in this country, which has, over the past 40 years, become dominated by conservative thought. ACS has very vibrant student and lawyer chapters across the country and appears to be gaining momentum.

ACS has been a great help to me as I begin my career as a young lawyer. Attending the 2011 Convention taught me so much and helped me make connections with like-minded legal professionals and law students. My only regret is that I didn't get involved sooner! When I was in law school, I attended some great programming sponsored by ACS, but it wasn't until I started working that I realized how much ACS does and what a passionate group of people it represents.

ACS is doing the most important work in our nation right now by countering the ever-present shrill, hateful bombast insisting the Constitution supports an extremist, retrograde agenda. Staffed by the best and brightest lawyers in the country, ACS posits a thoughtful and balanced view of our nation's charter and acts as a a powerful counterweight to the "originalist" agenda which is nothing but a shorthand for institutionalized Christian fundamentalism and economic corporatism.

As a civil rights attorney I am deeply grateful for ACS and the work they do. If they didn't exist, they would have to be invented.

ACS is a tremendous force for good in the legal community. They provide a much-needed alternative to the conservative, activist model of Constitutional interpretation promulgated by the Federalist Society.

The ACS staff and Board are high-level professionals and their educational programs
are of the highest quality. For all of these reasons, ACS is growing fast and has quickly become one of ht most influential legal groups in the country.

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.
