Who we are
We are the American Civil Liberties Union, Student Chapter, for Wayne State University Law School. The ACLU unpacks the concepts of liberty and freedom, determining all the rights and privileges entailed in them. It stands guard and protects all individuals, regardless of their race, gender, religion or national origin, because it holds firm to the idea that all people should be afforded protection under the laws of the United States. In addition to this, the ACLU promotes social justice and raises awareness of events throughout the country, as well as advocating for fair and just legislation.
What we do
The Student Chapter at Wayne Law takes in all law students with a yen for public interest. We primarily work in conjunction with the Metro Detroit branch of the ACLU of Michigan, spreading information about issues they’re tackling and events they’re having. We also try to promote public discourse on important matters by having lectures for all to attend.
We have a group page available on TWEN for all law students. You can find it by accessing TWEN and clicking “Add Course.” We’re listed as “The ACLU at Wayne State University Law School.”
