ACS: American Constitution Socieyt for Law and Policy:
SHAPING DEBATE, BUILDING NETWORKS, MAKING A DIFFERENCE

The American Constitution Society (ACS) believes that law should be a force to improve the lives of all people. ACS works for positive change by shaping debate on vitally important legal and constitutional issues through development and promotion of high-impact ideas to opinion leaders and the media; by building networks of lawyers, law students, judges and policymakers dedicated to those ideas; and by countering the activist conservative legal movement that has sought to erode our enduring constitutional values. By bringing together powerful, relevant ideas and passionate, talented people, ACS makes a difference in the constitutional, legal and public policy debates that shape our democracy

Federalist Society Info Session and General Meeting

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 at 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Location: 499

The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a non-profit, non-partisan network of conservative and libertarian lawyers, students, and academics dedicated to promotion, awareness, and debate on the principles of individual liberty, limited government, rule of law, and separation of powers.

The purpose of the student chapter is to create a forum for debate in which diverse legal viewpoints and perspectives can be heard. The Society does not take “positions” on issues and there are differing viewpoints even among members. Per our mission to promote a diversity of viewpoints, we host a variety of speakers with different perspectives on various topics. Last year we hosted over 12 speakers and organized and co-sponsored 5 debates/panels. Upcoming topics include:
• environmental law
• polygraph and criminal investigation
• police use of force
• police accountability
• the paramilitarization of police forces
• civil asset forfeiture
• data mining and privacy

Please sign-up on TWEN to receive notifications on events and other opportunities.

Lunch provided at all events and meetings.
