This is my first year as a student member and I'm absolutely blown away by how supportive the staff that I've met is. The organization and its members are some of the most dedicated people around. The organization has been truly influential in showing me that a legal career can be a tool in affecting change.

I attended the ACS 2011 Annual Convention and the program was informative and intellectually challenging. Speakers ranged from Paul Clement to Floyd Abrams. It was the best CLE program I've ever attended and it was exciting to listen to a range of speakers discuss a variety of pressing legal and public policy issues.

I was both a member and an officer of my law school student chapter of the American Constitution Society, and of all the organizations with which I was involved in law school, ACS was one of the best. The national staff is always willing and able to assist student chapters in creating interesting and relevant programs. Moreover, the speakers who willing to share their experience and knowledge with students and other progressive lawyers is simply phenomenal.

In a continually rightward drifting country, the ACS remains a fair and stalwart defender of the Constitution. All of its programs are informative and inspiring. Anyone who supports democratic principles should join and donate to the ACS!

I first discovered the American Constitution Society when I was in law school. Having gone to a fairly conservative school, I was looking for an organization that matched the already strong conservative organizations on campus. Finding ACS on the web, I decided to go to their annual meeting three years ago.

I'm glad that I did. ACS put on an excellent program featuring some of the best and brightest minds on the liberal and progressive side of the law. In addition to the programming, I made many connections with other attendees to the convention. The staff at ACS was very supportive when I decided to start a new chapter of the organization at my law school campus.

I've now been a member of the organization for just over three years and by far it has been the most valuable of all of the professional organizations I have joined. I would highly recommend ACS to any lawyer who is interested in connecting with other progressive lawyers and thinking about the big picture issues of our day.

Nothing. They should continue doing great work.

The ACS is a dynamic organization devoted to promoting a progressive vision of Constitutional interpretation. Through its many law school and lawyer chapters, it brings together like-minded individuals who strive together for goals, such as equality under the law, and access to the courts for all persons regardless of social standing.

Specifically for the Washington, DC area, there are many events hosted by both the D.C. lawyer chapter and the national organization where one can listen to thoughtful and interesting speakers. The organization also promotes an annual "Constitution in the Classroom" event where local attorneys work within the public school system to educate students regarding our founding document.

The Great!

I would schedule more volunteer outreach events, similar to the Constitution in the Classroom events, to better link the ACS with other progressive organizations.

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.

Make it more accessible to non-lawyers.
