Help ACS Build the Next Generation of Legal Leaders


It is always incredibly inspiring to hear stories from law students and lawyers about how their involvement in ACS has encouraged them to be leaders and advocates in their communities by running for office, getting involved in pro bono work, organizing trainings, mentoring, teaching, and so much more. These stories bring about a sense of hope in a time when an active conservative legal movement and all levels of government have made numerous, egregious attempts at restricting our rights and threatening the rule of law.

The empowerment that ACS builds within its network is at the core of ACS’s mission. However, engaging and providing our network with the unique opportunities and resources to become effective leaders cannot be done without the support of our members, donors, and advocates.

On Tuesday, November 27, 2018, we ask you to join us on #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving, and help us continue to build a lasting progressive infrastructure and provide ACS’s exceptional network of leaders with the tools and resources they need to do the necessary work of protecting rights and liberties in their communities.

  • Your support will expand the Next Generation Leaders (NGL) program, which provides talented law students and lawyers unique opportunities including career advancement, mentoring, and priority access to fellowships and scholarships for ACS activities.
  • Your support will help to strengthen the judicial pipeline by providing resources and organizing conversations with judges on clerkship opportunities.
  • Your gift allows ACS to connect volunteer lawyers with pro bono opportunities and provide law students and public interest lawyers with scholarships to participate in our annual Student Convention and National Convention where they have the chance to network with lawyers and law students from all over the country.

All aspects of the legal profession need to better reflect our country—from law students to practitioners to judges and elected officials. It is more important than ever that we continue to lift progressive voices and the hard work being done by current and future legal leaders.

Please mark your calendars and join us and millions of Americans on November 27 for #GivingTuesday.
