American Constitution Society
Law School
Email: [[e|amcsxx]]
Purpose: To not serve as a counterbalance to conservatism, but to provide a forum for a more broadly representative discourse. We seek to restore balance, to expand and reinvigorate the marketplace of ideas, to draw the best from conservative, moderate, and progressive thought. By this we mean to provide our leaders with a full complement of tools with which to create an America that is better for us all. The Marshall-Wythe Law School, our nation's oldest institution of legal learning, should be at the front line of this vision of progressive legalism. In the tradition of George Wythe and John Marshall, we have educated generations of "citizen lawyers." As future citizen-lawyers, it is especially incumbent upon us to incorporate humanism and idealism into our scholastic experience. The mission of the Marshall-Wythe chapter of the American Constitution Society is to create for ourselves the more balanced legal education that we require, through organization and mobilization of like-minded students and faculty.
