American Civil Liberties Union

The student branch of the ACLU works to promote the cause of civil liberties among students and faculty at the law school. The ACLU is the nation's premier organization dedicated to defending and expanding civil liberties and civil rights for all people in America. Our job is to conserve America's original civic calues - the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Since its founding in 1920, the ACLU has known that liberty must be defended over and over again. That's what ACLU attorneys stand before the Supreme Court more often than anyone else except the federal government itself. And for every case the ACLU brings before the Supreme Court, they bring hundreds more nationwide to lower courts and school boards.

The ACLU is an unwavering voice of liberty in courtrooms, legislatures and public squares, willing to take on clients, causes and causes that advance our basic rights, without regard to popular whim or the current political cilmate, and paying particular attention to the rights of those people who have historically been disenfranchised.
