What We Do
The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy (ACS) promotes 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. These abiding principles are reflected in the vision of the Constitution’s framers and the wisdom of forward-looking leaders who have shaped our law throughout American history. As a result of their efforts, the Constitution has retained its authority and relevance for each new generation.
With over 175 law school and lawyer chapters all across the country, ACS is working to:
- Promote a progressive vision of the Constitution, public policy, and the law through speaking programs; issue groups focused on discrete law and policy subjects; a speakers bureau of leading scholars and practitioners; and media outreach and publications, all designed to turn the tide of legal and policy discourse at both the local and national levels;
- Educate lawyers, law students, decision-makers, and the public about the legitimacy of such a vision and its importance for both our society and the lives of individuals;
- Strengthen the intellectual underpinnings for progressive law and policy in the United States; and
- Build a diverse and dynamic national network of students, lawyers, academics, judges, and policymakers to lead America today and over the long term
