Harris Bresowsky ’22 is one of just 22 American Constitution Society (ACS) Next Generation Leaders selected from nearly 200 ACS chapters with thousands of participating law students across the United States.
“I'm honored. I want to thank the American Constitution Society for selecting me as part of its 2022 class and I hope to further ACS's mission for years to come. I'd also like to thank Albany Law School and our incredible e-board and faculty members who have helped me throughout my time as co-chair of our ACS chapter,” Bresowsky said.
Annually, the ACS selects law students who show significant leadership, commitment, and engagement to their chapter. Overall, ACS supports a network of legal professionals who interpret the Constitution and focus on, “building and leading a diverse legal community that dedicates itself to advancing and defending democracy, justice, equality, and liberty; to securing a government that serves the public interest; and to guarding against the abuse of law and the concentration of power.”
Bresowsky’s application – which included work as a chapter leader during the challenges of the COVID-19 Pandemic and a compelling recommendation from faculty advisor Professor Ray Brescia – stood out to the national chapter, ACS leaders said.
In the last year, Albany Law School’s ACS chapter organized several debates and collaborative discussions with other student organizations including:
ACS Next Generation Leaders serve two years as a student member of the ACS board. They also receive access to ACS career development resources and networking opportunities.
Bresowsky will be formally recognized at the 2022 ACS National Convention in June. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and the Honorable Vanita Gupta are among the panelists at the convention.
Beyond his ACS work, Bresowsky is also a Government Law Center Fellow and member of the Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity.
