Federalist Society

Who Are We?
The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order. It is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be. The Society's main purpose is to sponsor fair, serious, and open debate to ensure that legal principles that have not been the subject of sufficient attention for the past several decades receive a fair hearing.

Mission Statement
The Federalist Society seeks both to promote an awareness of these principles and to further their application through its activities. This entails reordering priorities within the legal system to place a premium on individual liberty, traditional values, and the rule of law. It also requires restoring the recognition of the importance of these norms among lawyers, judges, and law professors.

Major Activities
We will be hosting a number of debates and speakers throughout the academic year.
