Washington, DC — The American Constitution Society (ACS) announced today that David Adeleye, of the Indiana University Maurer School of Law (Class of 2021), has been selected to serve on its board of directors for a two-year term.

“David is a powerful advocate for many of the issues at the heart of ACS’s mission and a celebrated leader on his campus. We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome him to the ACS national board,” said ACS President Russ Feingold. “We’re confident he will bring the vision and enthusiasm he has shown as ACS’s student chapter president at Indiana University’s Maurer School of Law to his new role.”

Adeleye has been involved with ACS since he began law school. He joined the ACS IU Maurer Student Chapter in his first year of law school and served as chapter president during the 2019-2020 school year. Under Adeleye’s leadership the chapter hosted standing-room-only events, recruited new student members, and established ACS as a leader amongst campus organizations. The IU Maurer Student Chapter also earned a Programming Award from ACS as a result of his leadership. Adeleye also has worked to collaborate with the Hoosier Lawyer Chapter, and earlier this spring was selected by ACS as a Next Generation Leader.

Prior to law school, Adeleye served in advisory roles within the Obama Administration at the White House and the Department of Homeland Security. He remains politically active on the local and national level.
