My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy, Washington, DC, USA
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.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Give it more money, so it can more fully fund student activities across the country.
