Review for The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a member of ACS for over six years. I first became a member of ACS in law school, where is provided me with an opportunity to connect with progressive law students at my school and across the country. It also provided a forum to discuss important legal and policy issues, as well as hear from leading practitioners and professors in the field.

Since graduating from law school, ACS has continued to provide opportunities to interact with other young lawyers, as well as keep abreast of cutting-edge issues across a range of legal areas.

Review for The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The American Constitution Society (ACS) provides an opportunity for progressive law students and attorneys to interact, exchange ideas and learn from one another. Through events, issue briefs, student and lawyer chapters, publications, and a host of other activities, ACS creates a forum for the discussion and implementation of progressive legal ideas. By fostering a strong progressive legal community, ACS encourages and equips lawyers to advance the cause of social justice in their professional lives. The interactions between practitioners in the field, the best legal minds in the country, and the next generation of social justice-minded lawyers creates an exciting and inspiring atmosphere, one that serves as a reminder of all the wonderful things that lawyers are doing, and can be doing, to make the world a better place.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

encouraging innovative thinking, building a progressive legal community, and providing support to young attorneys seeking to advance social justice.

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

expand the number and scope of the organization's local chapters to ensure that, no matter where they live, progressive lawyers are aware of the possibilities to pursue social justice through the law, and have the network and support necessary to do so.
