The Michigan Law Chapter of ACS is excited to be recognized as Student Chapter of the Week!

On the cusp of an important midterm election and a critical SCOTUS term, ACS at Michigan Law has centered events around the actions progressive lawyers can take to protect our democracy.

Following an energizing first meeting on what it means to be a progressive lawyer with Professor Barbara McQuade, ACS hosted a SCOTUS term preview event with Professor Leah Litman, a co-host on Crooked Media’s Strict Scrutiny podcast.

The next event of the year featured Congresswoman Debbie Dingell, Deputy Legal Director of the ACLU Michigan Bonsitu Kitaba, and Professor Ellen Katz on “Protecting the Right to Vote.” In partnership with the Michigan Voting Project, ACS hopes to encourage students to participate in this upcoming election as both voters and volunteer poll workers.

ACS is also delighted to host Congressman Jamie Raskin, who serves on the House of Representatives Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol, and Congresswoman Debbie Dingell for a Q&A on protecting the fabric of American Democracy.

ACS at MLaw is led by a dedicated team of 2Ls, as well as several 3L and 1L representatives. ACS at MLaw would like to thank their incredible faculty sponsor, Barbara McQuade, for all of the guidance and support she has provided this year. They would also like to thank their general members and campus partners for creating exciting opportunities for a student body that wants to see a positive change in its legal community.
