The UT Law Chapter of ACS started in 2001 to provide balance to the conservative vision that dominated the debate at the Law School. ACS is a national organization comprised of law students, lawyers, etc. who are working to ensure that the fundamental principles of human dignity, individual rights and liberties, genuine equality, and access to justice are in their rightful, central place in American law. That means we think about law in theory, but we also think about how law affects people, their daily lives, and their right to equality.
