Relevant and rich programming on legal topics with excellent reach to students and diverse members and communities.
ACS has been a constant force for enrichment and engagement through law school and my professional years. I enjoy the high-quality programming and opportunity to engage with diverse thought leaders. I satisfy my intellectual side through ACS. As a bonus, I even met some dear friends through ACS involvement.
At a time in the US when a number of cherished rights as well as our democracy and the rule of law are gravely threatened, the American Constitution Society (ACS) is helping to shape the debate on important legal and constitutional issues, build networks of lawyers, law students, judges and policymakers who want the law to improve the lives of Americans, and defend enduring constitutional values. I have attended a number of truly excellent discussions by leading lawyers and law professors on topics such as the legal status of corporations, the recently-ended Supreme Court term, theories of executive power under the Constitution (including a discussion of how different legal theories relate to special counsel Robert Mueller), and the recent nomination to the Supreme Court. ACS is playing a vital rule during these momentous times.
The American Constitution Society has been uniquely effective in bringing together the country's best legal minds, including lawyers, judges, academics, public officials, and law students, to develop a progressive vision of our Constitution and laws. It has been profoundly influential in helping to shape public debate over critical Constitutional and legal issues. As a law professor, I have benefitted directly from its programs and publications, as well as the networking opportunities ACS creates for professional and intellectual exchange.
The American Constitution Society is the foremost national network of lawyers, judges, policy makers and law students working to develop and promote the ideas and strategies that can help move our legal system and the constitutional law that governs it in a more progressive direction. I have had the privilege of being both audience and participant for various of its outstanding programs at both the local and national level and find that its blog and publications are reliable sources of important new insights into law and social justice. As a law professor, I know that my students who belong to ACS find their engagement with the local and national organizations to be a source of inspiration as they pursue their own paths towards legal careers that serve the public interest. ACS is simply indispensable.
ACS does a great job connecting like-minded law students and lawyers and making substantive contributions to current constitutional debates.
ACS has helped connect like minded lawyers so we can collectively advocate for positive change, further develop legal theories based on the changing landscape, and assist one another in advancing or careers. It has been a pleasure and an honor working with them for over 10 years.
ACS plays a vital role in convening, educating, inspiring, and networking law students, lawyers, judges, academics, policymakers and others who believe that law should be a positive force for everyone in the United States. As a law student I am involved with ACS in my earliest years, and it helped supplement the legal education I received in classrooms with a greater focus on real-world issues and current debates. I am confident that ACS has made me better aware of the challenges facing our democracy.
ACS does an amazing job informing the broader public about important legal issues, helping to ensure an informed and motivated citizenry.
Plays an invaluable role in shaping the legal dialogue on constitutional issues from a progressive perspective.
Very useful connector for lawyers both at the national and state level: educational programs, mentoring with law students, advocacy opportunities and more!
I have been a member of this organization for 3+ years and have seen the growth and impact they are having on the legal profession. This vital organization will help unite lawyers across the country to make positive, progressive impacts on a local, state, and national level.
This organization is a fantastic resource for the progressive legal community and those working on legal policy issues. I find myself consistently returning to its website for both the latest in legal developments as well as for foundational background on new topics. Its blogs are well-curated and cover a range of topics and perspectives.
As a young law student, I am so pleased that ACS is out there promoting a positive, progressive vision of the law. Having already attended the 2017 Annual Convention and numerous chapter events, I am excited to keep working with this group.
ACS is a nonprofit, nonpartisan progressive policy organization. It works closely with local bar associations, law students, judges, Congress, and many other organizations to advocate for a more progressive reading of the Constitution. I think its work with law schools and young, new lawyers is some of its best and most important work. It helps young people become active in their communities, connects them with judges, and affects change in vulnerable populations with the energy of those new lawyers.
An amazing organization! Everyone in the national office is approachable, helpful, and friendly. I’ve been to a number of interesting events with unparalleled commentary and networking opportunities.
I have been involved with this organization for the last 5 years and the work that they do is critical in advancing the public debate on so many crucial issues facing this nation.
