ACS Student Chapter Receives National Honors


The University of Denver Sturm College of Law’s American Constitution Society (ACS) Student Chapter was recently recognized by the national ACS organization for its up and coming work and compelling programs.

In April, the chapter was selected as the “Rising Chapter of the Year Award.” The annual award is given to a new or recently revived chapter that has done the most to advance progressive causes.  After a period of time where the chapter was in a lull, student leaders, including Chapter President Naomi Martin, 3L, stepped up to reinvigorate Denver Law’s chapter with distinguished results.

“As a newly revived chapter, you burst onto the ACS Student Chapters scene with an impressive program of events on progressive issues and ACS priorities, including the Kavanaugh Nomination, the role state attorneys general play in our system of government, national security and privacy, immigration, criminal justice, first amendment, income inequality, and the rights of indigenous communities,” said Peggy Li, ACS Associate Director of Chapters.

The chapter was also awarded a coveted “Programming Award” from the national organization. The awards were announced in May and were given to the strongest chapters that conducted at least 20 substantive and compelling events during the school year. Denver Law’s ACS Student Chapter was selected because its programming facilitated strong connections between the student members, the lawyer members, the faculty and the greater Colorado legal community.

“Your chapter has done a phenomenal job and is a model for not only new or recently revived chapters but also all of our chapters. Thank you for creating a constructive dialogue for change at DU and strengthening our progressive network. We are honored to work with the Denver Law ACS Student Chapter and are grateful for your contributions to ACS’s mission,” said Li.
