ACS has been a real anchor for me, helping me in my career, opening doors and making connections. Staff is wonderful, smart and effective. Law students and lawyers, policymakers and judges -- this is an organization that is making a difference in helping shape law and policy, respecting the Constitution while advancing progressive principles.
ACS has really helped me to see how lawyers can make a difference in our society and in my community. The presentations and the speakers that ACS has hosted at my school have shown me how the law affects individuals and changes broad social issues. It has also helped me connect with professionals and form stronger connections with my professors, which I believe will help me in my career, as well as enhancing my education and my commitment to service.
ACS has served as a valuable resource throughout my law school career. At my school, ACS has connected me with classmates and professors who share similar beliefs and career goals as me. In my local community, I am able to connect with professionals, including prominent lawyers like judges, all because of ACS. Further, nationally, I am connected to a robust network of attorneys. The educational, learning, and networking opportunities are abundant for ACS members both in law school and in the legal community.
The American Constitution Society is the most incredible legal organization in existence. It connects legal practitioners and law students of all varieties from all over the country, and helps effectuate positive changes in society. I went to the National Convention this summer, and met so many amazing people. I was also able to listen to and chat with some incredible legal minds at all of the amazing panels and presentations. I am also a member of the bay area lawyer's chapters (they have them all over the country) so I get invited to events like supreme court previews at law firms and local happy hours. It's really terrific!
ACS is a wonderful organization that provides ample opportunities for networking and thoughtful discourse on the leading issues of our time. Every ACS event I've attended has been welcoming and informative. I always enjoy what the organization has to offer.
ACS provides a powerful opportunity to network with individuals committed to the vitality of the U.S. Constitution and it's expressed fundamental values: individual rights and liberties, genuine equality, access to justice, democracy and the rule of law. I had the good fortune to recently attend my first ACS National Convention and was so impressed with the plethora of fabulous speakers. The speakers did an outstanding job discussing and explaining important legal topics of the day. The convention was remarkable. The speakers and events really did help foster progressive discussion and opportunities for real-world change, as another reviewer aptly stated. Members of local chapters volunteer their time and work hard to provide meaningful presentations and serve their local communities. ACS also does a stellar job producing meaningful publications, many of which are available for free on their website.
I also attended an ACS conference in DC and it could not have been better. The speakers and events all help to foster an open, progressive discussion that encourages real-world change.
More than the recent conference, however, ACS allows its chapters to pursue thought-provoking events interesting to local communities. These events attract legal professionals in many types of roles, helping to encourage connections that would likely not exist otherwise. ACS excels at bringing together people of similar values to maximize its impact civic and legal discourse both locally and nationally.
Its yearly conference was a great example of these strengths, and my volunteer work at ACS is valuable because it helps contribute to such a great organization.
ACS is a power house of legal analysis offering candid insight into the workings of our courts, government and communities. Their 2014 annual convention presented many panels on relevant legal issues provoking thoughtful discussions for everyone present. Their staff did an amazing job of bringing everyone and everything together all while making it appear effortless.
I recently attended and volunteered at an ACS conference in Washington D.C. and I had a wonderful experience. The issues this group works on are relevant and important to all of us, the speakers and panels were great, and the conference was well organized. -Chris P., Portland, ME.
