The American Constitution Society (ACS) believes that our laws and legal systems should be forces to improve and protect the lives of all people. ACS works for progressive legal reform by shaping debate on our most pressing legal and constitutional challenges; with our nationwide network of lawyers, law students, judges, scholars, activists, and policymakers dedicated to those ideas; and by countering the activist conservative legal movement that has sought to erode our enduring constitutional values and rights.

The Administration Associate will work with the Administration Senior Associate, Assistant Director of Administration and Director of Finance to perform a wide variety of tasks including, but not limited to providing administrative support across all ACS departments, with a particular focus on supporting the Administration department, working on a cross-departmental team responsible for maintaining ACS’s Salesforce database, preparing Continuing Legal Education (CLE) documentation for ACS-hosted events, providing staff support at ACS events held in Washington, DC.

Further duties include creating and maintaining an ongoing and organized record of donations received, coordinating with other departments regarding basic finance operations, serving as initial point of contact for lawyers, judges, professors, and other members of the public contacting the organization via email or voicemail as well as assisting with vendors and payment processes, maintaining department files and processing incoming mail.

The Administration Associate will also work cross-departmentally on projects within ACS and will have the opportunity to become familiar with the wide variety of programs and initiatives that ACS is involved with. These may include ACS chapter events, the Class Cancellation project, and ACS’s Path to the Bench program, among others.
