Student Organizations

American Constitution Society for Law and Policy (ACS)

The American Constitution Society (ACS) believes that law should be a progressive force that improves the lives of all people. ACS strives for positive change by stimulating discussion on vitally important legal and constitutional issues. We do this by articulating and presenting high-impact ideas to those in government, legal education, and the media; building networks of lawyers, students, judges, and policymakers dedicated to furthering those ideas; and by countering the activist conservative legal agenda that has sought to erode many of our enduring constitutional values.

Our chapter’s activities include: networking events with local, progressive attorneys; inviting speakers to present contemporary legal issues from a variety of perspectives; and hosting social events for students and faculty.

Everyone is invited to find out more about the networking opportunities created by involvement in the American Constitution Society.  For more information, contact us at umclawacs@missouri.edu.
