American Constitution Society
The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy (ACS) is one of the nation's leading progressive legal organizations. Founded in 2001, ACS is a rapidly growing network of lawyers, law students, scholars, judges, policymakers and other concerned individuals. Our mission is to promote the vitality of the U.S. Constitution and the fundamental values it expresses: individual rights and liberties, genuine equality, access to justice, democracy and the rule of law. We are revitalizing and transforming legal and policy debates in classrooms, courtrooms, legislatures and the media, and we are building a diverse and dynamic network of progressives committed to justice. UCLA's ACS chapter is the most active student organization on campus. We are comprised of law students committed to building a broad community around a progressive vision of law and policy. Throughout the year, we hold substantive events on issues ranging from immigrants' rights and criminal justice to constitutional interpretation. We also hold social events throughout the year to connect students with faculty and practitioners and with each other.
