ACS LogoMission:  UCLA’s ACS chapter is the most active student organization on campus. We are comprised of law students committed to building a broad community around a progressive vision of law and policy. Throughout the year, we hold substantive events on issues ranging from immigrants' rights and criminal justice to constitutional interpretation. We also hold social events throughout the year to connect students with faculty and practitioners and with each other.

ACS is a national organization of law students, lawyers, scholars, judges, policymakers, and others who are committed to ensuring that fundamental principles of human dignity, individual rights and liberties, genuine equality, and access to justice are given their rightful, central place in American Law.

ACS educates about and advocates for a progressive vision of the law, focusing on issues such as access to the courts, anti-discrimination and affirmative action, civil liberties; consumer rights; criminal justice; disability rights; freedom of speech; gay rights; international human rights; immigration; labor law; open government; privacy; protection of health, safety and the environment; and women's rights and reproductive choice.

The American Constitution Society takes no position on particular legal or policy initiatives. All expressions of opinion are those of the author or authors. ACS encourages its members to express their views and make their voices heard in order to further a rigorous discussion of important issues.
