As adapted from the ACS National website:

Founded in 2001, ACS’s mission is to ensure that fundamental principles of human dignity, individual rights and liberties, genuine equality, and access to justice enjoy their rightful, central place in American law.

ACS is a non-partisan, non-profit educational organization. We do not, as an organization, lobby, litigate or take positions on specific issues, cases, legislation or nominations. We do encourage our members to express their views and make their voices heard.

ACS aims to revitalize and transform the legal and policy debates occurring in law school classrooms, federal and state courtrooms, legislative hearing rooms and the media. Through student and lawyer chapters all across the country, and programs and projects at both the national and local level, we are working every day to advance a progressive vision of the law on issues across the policy spectrum.

The American Constitution Society:

  • promotes a progressive vision of the Constitution, law and public policy;
  • educates lawyers, law students, decision-makers and the public about the historic basis and vitality of such a vision and its importance for the lives of real people;
  • strengthens the intellectual underpinnings for progressive law and policy in the United States; and continues to build a diverse and dynamic national network.

Speakers at ACS events have included:

  • Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer;
  • Former Vice President Al Gore;
  • Former Attorney General Janet Reno;
