The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy
July 9, 2011

While there are several progressive think tanks and policy groups, only ACS is anchored in hundreds of law-student and lawyer chapters around the country, with the mission of growing the next generation of progressive lawyers and policy-makers by exposure to ideas and with links made to one another. It is a unique role within the progressive community.

The Federalist Society is much better funded, serving restaurant-quality meals at its events -- and we all know that a student body marches on its stomach.
