American Constitution Society

Congratulations to ACS Santa Clara Chapter for receiving an award from ACS National in recognition of our high-quality programming in 2012!

Mission and Principles:

The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy (ACS) promotes the vitality of the U.S. Constitution and the fundamental values it expresses: individual rights and liberties, genuine equality, access to justice, democracy, and the rule of law. These abiding principles are reflected in the vision of the Constitution’s framers and in the wisdom of forward-looking leaders who have shaped our law throughout American history.  As a result of their efforts, the Constitution has retained its authority and relevance for each new generation.

The American Constitution Society embraces the progress our nation has made toward full embodiment of the Constitution’s core values. ACS believes that law can and should be a force for improving the lives of all people. We are revitalizing and transforming legal and policy debates in classrooms, courtrooms, legislatures and the media, and we are building a diverse and dynamic network of people committed to justice.

The Santa Clara University School of Law chapter of the American Constitution Society aims to encourage debate and discussion with the purpose of promoting progressive law and policy in the United States.

Board Officers 2014-2015:

Hunter Luthi, President: hluthi@scu.edu
