American Constitution Society (ACS)

The American Constitution Society is a national organization of law students, law professors, practicing lawyers, and others.  We seek to revitalize and transform the legal debate; to counter the dominant vision of American law today, a narrow conservative vision that lacks appropriate regard for the ways in which the law affects people’s lives; and to restore the fundamental principles of human dignity, individual rights and liberties, genuine equality, and access to justice to their rightful – and traditionally central – place in American law.
