Law and the Courts

The Issue

ACE’s leadership in judicial advocacy over the years has focused on organizing and preparing more than 200 amicus briefs in cases of broad or significant sector importance in the U.S. Supreme Court and elsewhere across the country, typically submitted on behalf of numerous higher education associations. ACE monitors a wide range of legal issues and developments that impact colleges and universities, sustains close relationships with campus counsel and the National Association of College and University Attorneys, and submits comments to federal agencies regarding proposed regulations. We periodically prepare issue briefs (white papers) addressing current legal issues of concern to our members, and we regularly serve as a media resource and commentator on legal issues that impact colleges and universities.
