About ResearchLink

ACS ResearchLink collects legal research topics submitted by practitioners for law students to explore in faculty-supervised writing projects for academic credit. Topic authors receive a copy of the resulting student papers and ACS publishes the best papers in a searchable online library. By connecting law students and faculty with the research needs of public interest organizations and advocates, ACS ResearchLink has become an invaluable resource for the public interest community, while also enhancing the relevance and influence of student academic scholarship. The project leverages previously untapped resources to generate and share new ideas about important legal issues, while engaging the next generation of lawyers in addressing vital law and policy issues that will shape the future of our country.
