There are a number of reasons to join our leadership, but here’s just a few:
  • We are one of the leading chapters in the nation. We have been recognized as ACS national chapter of the week three years in a row. We have received national programming awards in each of the past three years. Our past presidents have gone on to serve as Next Generation Leaders on the ACS National Board.
  • Our chapter brings interesting and renown speakers to Chicago-Kent. Just this week, David Cole came to talk about his new book, Engines of Liberty. We’ve also had federal judges, past and present Illinois Solicitors General, and other famous scholars and politicians come to speak about issues important to ACS.
  • We put on events that are relevant to our lives as students, like the Kent vs. Krent oral argument demonstration, which coincides with 1L Hughes preparation.
  • We seek to make sure that there is fair and open dialogue about important legal issues of the day, all while remembering our progressive roots and promoting a vision of the law that is inclusive.
In addition, our Chapter’s Constitution gives the executive board the power to elect additional members to the board in specialized roles as it sees fit. In previous years, those roles have included: Program Director, Membership Director, Social Director, Publicity Director, Communications Director, Faculty Liaison, Student Organizations Liaison, Student Chapters Liaison, Lawyer Chapter Liaison, Community Service Director, Alumni Liaison, Conventions Coordinator, Digital Strategy Director, Website Editor, Social Media Coordinator, Historian, Fundraising Director, Bookkeeper, and so much more. These positions can be filled after the election, or at any time throughout the year.
