Tomorrow at 12:20 in JG 105, join ACS for Scandal at 1600: The US Attorneys Affair. Preet Bharara, chief counsel to Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and a former assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York, will discuss his work for the Judiciary Committee. Bharara is heading the investigation into the Bush administrations' firing of eight U.S Attorneys, allegedly for political purposes, and the resulting fallout. A CLS alum described as sort of the bad boy of the Law Review by a former classmate, Bharara worked in private practice for several years before serving as an assistant US Attorney from 2000 to 2005 where he prosecuted various mafia families.

Who We AreACS is a national organization of law students, law professors, practicing lawyers and others. We seek to revitalize and transform the legal debate, to counter the narrow conservative vision of American law that lacks appropriate regard for the ways in which the law affects people's lives. We seek to restore the fundamental principles of respect for human dignity, protection of individual rights and liberties, genuine equality, and access to justice to their rightful - and traditionally central - place in American law.
The American Constitution Society is a non-partisan, non-profit educational organization. We do not, as an organization, lobby, litigate, or take positions on specific issues, cases, legislation, or nominations. We do encourage our members to express their views and make their voices heard. The views expressed on this blog are those of individual ACS members and are not written on behalf of the organization.
