The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy today announced the appointment of four new board members, including Lieff Cabraser Managing Partner Steven E. Fineman.
“Members of the ACS Board and Board of Advisors play a crucial role in guiding ACS down the right path in advancing the progressive values and principles of the Constitution,” said ACS President Caroline Fredrickson. “This is another top class in the leadership of ACS and these committed professionals will help shape our ability to make the law a force for civil rights and justice.”
About the American Constitution Society
The American Constitution Society is a progressive legal organization whose mission is to promote the vitality of the U.S. Constitution and the fundamental values it expresses: individual rights and liberties, genuine equality, access to justice, democracy and the rule of law.
The ACS believes the law should be a force to improve the lives of all people. ACS works for positive change by shaping debate on vitally important legal and constitutional issues through development and promotion of high-impact ideas to opinion leaders and the media; by building networks of lawyers, law students, judges and policymakers dedicated to those ideas; and by countering the activist conservative legal movement that has sought to erode our enduring constitutional values.
