I am a second year law student at Concord Law School who had an opportunity to attend the 2012 ACS National Convention in Washington, D.C. this past June on a student scholarship. I strongly support the efforts of the American Constitutional Society for Law and Policy as they promote the vitality of the U.S. Constitution and the fundamental values it expresses. One area that I am particularly interested in is access to justice. During one of the many break-out sessions at the Convention those in attendance were made particularly aware of the judicial vacancy crisis. The extent of the crisis puts at serious risk the ability of all Americans to have a fair hearing in court. This concern was woven into many of the break-out sessions provided at the Convention along with specific information on communicating an effective message to the public and governmental officials regarding his concern. Democracy must constantly be safeguarded and the ACS is an organization that not only promotes thoughtful discussion among individuals but also preserves the fundamental tenet that the law should be a force to improve the lives of all the people.
