State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent, Ohio) will join elected officials and noted policy experts today for a leadership roundtable discussion at the Duke University School of Law. The discussion is part of the American Constitution Society’s (ACS) Student Convention, an annual event that brings law students, lawmakers and legal experts together to discuss critical constitutional and public policy issues.

“It’s truly an honor to speak at Duke University at this important national gathering,” said Rep. Clyde. “ACS serves as an invaluable resource for many across the country as a leading repository for progressive thought and public policy. This is a unique opportunity to share my experiences in public service and to meet the next generation of lawyers, legislators and policy makers who will make a positive difference as leaders in their communities.”

ACS’s mission is to promote individual rights and liberties, genuine equality, access to justice, democracy and the rule of law. The organization has 200 law student chapters across the country that work to develop the next generation of progressive lawyers, judges, policy experts, legislators and scholars.

Speakers will engage with law students and share personal experiences from their respective fields. Rep. Clyde will outline her work as a four-term state representative from Northeast Ohio. Rep. Clyde’s leadership on voting rights issues has garnered national attention, and she has been honored by the American Constitution Society, The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, the Ohio Democratic Party, the Ohio Association of Elections Officials and EMILY’s List for her work.
