ACS 2015 Student Convention

The American Constitution Society (ACS)’s Third Annual Student Convention was March 6-7, 2015 at the University of Texas School of Law. In light of this year’s convention theme, “Justice in the 21st Century,” speakers discussed progressive family values, women’s health, labor, access to justice, racial justice, immigration, voting and equality in the sphere of public policy and democracy. Austin served as an ideal nexus to shape debate around these timely and important issues, thereby enhancing the progressive vision of justice for all.

This Convention built upon our highly successful past student conventions at UCLA and Stanford Law School. The two-day program was highly interactive; students were encouraged to engage with speakers, share their ideas, and contribute to developing ACS’s student voice. They left equipped with useful tools, new strategies and theories to tackle some of our most important policy issues of the day and make a difference in expanding opportunity within their communities.
