The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy
July 9, 2011
I am honored to serve on the board of the American Constitution Society. Seldom has an organization been validated as quickly as ACS was at its founding ten years ago. Law students immediately saw the importance of participating in an organization dedicated to lifting up a vision of law and justice associated with progressive values. A decade later ACS has chapters at nearly 200 law schools and engages leaders in the law in significant public discussion of pressing legal issues of the day. I believe strongly that ACS has done crucial work in increasing the number of law students and lawyers who will participate on a lifelong basis in the hard work of keeping our democratic society committed to its founding values and ideals.

Board Member & I have worked closely with students at Georgetown who want to pursue the values espoused by ACS.
