American Constitution Society





Welcome to the Lewis & Clark Law School chapter of The American Constitution Society!

ACS is a national organization 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.

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 and consumer rights; protection of health, safety, and the environment; the criminal justice system; immigration; and international and human rights.
