About

American Constitution Society (ACS) is a national orgainization of law students, law professors, judges, practicing lawyers and others.  The Lewis & Clark Law School chapter was jointly founded in August 2003 by law students and professors who were interested in revitalizing and transforming legal debate both on campus and beyond.  Our goal is to strengthen the intellectual foundations of a more progressive vision of the law.

Mission

We hope to foster discourse and provide a forum for discussion and debate within the Lewis  & Clark Community on such issues as:  privacy; freedom of speech; federalism; antidiscrimination and affirmative action; gay rights; reproductive choice; disability rights; labor & consumer rights; protection of health, safety & the environment; the criminal justice system immigration; and international and human rights.
