ACS if you’re not talking more specific affinity groups.

Student chapters of the ACLU as well, and NLG if you're interested in more "radical" work. But there really isn't a liberal equivalent to Fed Soc; ACS tries but doesn't have anywhere near the cachet in the liberal world that Fed Soc has in the conservative one.

Big agree - nothing ACS has compares to the fedsoc clerkship pipeline

Moved to the proper forum, and don't use Legal Employment to get around the lack of an anon feature in other sub-forums. There's no earthly reason this question or any of its responses need to be anon.

At my school a lot of students were in the environemntal law club/ organization and they seemed to really help one another and a couple of the profs were pretty clsoe with them as well and would help in job searches and clerkships. Many of them were on the env journal as well. Can't say it works everywhere but just saw it often at my school.

This is like asking "Ladies' Night for men?" It doesn't exist. Supply and demand just don't like up nearly the same way for liberal-minded law students.
