ACS at UNC looks to get involved by bringing speakers into our school, reaching out to engage within our community, and helping student members network with other progressive lawyers both locally and nationally.
We have 2 Constitution in the Classroom events every year, where law students go into local middle schools and present a short lesson on important cases that affect student's constitutional rights. This is a fantastic opportunity to teach students the power of the law to bring positive changes into people's lives.
Each semester, UNC hosts Happy Hour events where we often try to bring in speakers. The happy hours are intimate and a fantastic opportunity to connect with fellow students and our speakers to discuss progressive legal issues.
UNC ACS is continuing to work on our Speaker Series. In the past, we have brought in experts on the Healthcare Act, and worked to coordinate speakers for marriage equality, among many others. If you have a particular speaker that you would like to bring to UNC, please contact any of our board members to coordinate such an event.
Finally, our year always ends with the National ACS Convention. Held in the heart of Washington DC, it is a packed weekend of speakers, networking, and workshops. The ACS National Convention is a unique opportunity to discuss and debate the pressing legal and policy issues of the day, and network with your legal idols, build relationships with potential mentors and employers, and start building career-long friendships with your peers.
