I last wrote a review about ACS almost three years ago, and the organization has continued to flourish. Even as the organization and its membership has increased in size, I find that the relationships I have built within ACS still make it feel like a family -- a family full of awesomely active folks all over the country working to make this country a better place for all. I can't say enough good things about ACS. I currently work in Miami in my dream job, and the fact that I'm here is in no small part thanks to ACS. The networks are wonderful, the publications and the convention (and other panels throughout the year, like the Supreme Court reviews) are extremely insightful, and the people of ACS itself are simply wonderful.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

put an ACS Lawyer chapter in every metropolitan area of the country!

The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy

I first learned about ACS during my first year of law school at the University of Georgia, and I became progressively more involved: I was the 2L co-president as well as the 3L co-president. As a progressive law student interested in public interest work, ACS was an incredible resource for me. It gave me a forum not only to meet other progressive students but to gain a much deeper understanding of the law and policy issues I cared about. The national organization was incredibly supportive of us -- if we had big ideas for an event, ACS gave us the money and the professional contacts to make it happen. We were essentially only limited by our creativity (and, of course, our law-student workload).

Since finishing law school, I served on the board of the DC Lawyer Chapter while I was clerking in DC. In that role, I was vice-chair for the Constitution in the Classroom program, where I helped organize and train other lawyers to teach lessons on constitutional law to public school students around DC (from elementary school through high school). We reached hundreds and hundreds of students, and it was a blast!

Now I'm in Atlanta for a couple of years and am starting to get involved with the Georgia Lawyer Chapter. Wherever you are, I would highly recommend getting involved with your local ACS chapter. Not only will you stay informed on the stuff you care about (through the great weekly newsletter, the diverse issue briefs, and the amazing annual conference), but you'll meet a lot of interesting people. And you'll have fun doing it!

The Great!

get more people reading ACS publications.
