FAMU College of Law Student Named Next Generation Leader for ACS


ORLANDO, Fla. Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) College of Law third-year student David Alcius was selected by the American Constitution Society (ACS) as a Next Generation Leader (NGL) during the spring semester of his second year.

“Being tabbed to join the 2017 Class of Next Generation Leaders of the American Constitution Society is a great opportunity for me to develop and network with an organization that is deeply involved at the local, state and national levels of our country,” expressed Alcius

According to the Society’s website, the ACS Next Generation Leaders program was launched in 2007 to identify and provide support to recent and forthcoming law school graduates who have demonstrated special leadership in their work with ACS’s student chapters, and who have an interest, skills and ability to remain vital members of the ACS community for years to come. Each year, only 20-25 students are selected as NGLs though a competitive national application process.

FAMU College of Law’s chapter of the ACS held several events during the past academic year, with Alcius serving as president.  Events included “Minorities in Trump’s America, What Now? What’s Next?” in partnership with the Orlando alumni chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.; Presidential Debate Watch Party during the 2016 presidential campaign; Screening of the Loving Story; “The Gavel Gap” panel discussion addressing the disparity between the composition on the Courts and People; and “Impact: Trump” panel discussion on the potential legal impact of President Trump in the areas of Constitutional Law, Environmental Regulation, Healthcare and Immigration Policy.

“The ACS is moving the conversation forward about the law and its role in our democracy,” Alcius said.  “I look forward to learning a lot in this capacity and implementing a great deal of the ideas and best practices here at the Florida A&M University College of Law and beyond.”
