The Federalist Society is a non-partisan conservative/libertarian organization dedicated to freedom, federalism, and judicial restraint.
The Federalist Society fosters a greater appreciation for the role of separation of powers; federalism; limited, constitutional government; and the rule of law in protecting individual freedom and traditional values.
Not all learning can be had from books. Much is learned in law school through contact with thinkers, judges and civic leaders, but even more valuable is thoughtful debate between you and your friends and colleagues. The Federalist Society, by broadening the law school debate with its publications and invited speakers, provides a forum for a fuller inquiry into today's legal issues than will be received from law school text books.
The Federalist Society seeks to encourage critical thinking and inspire broader participation in policy debates on both the national and local level. The Federalist Society seeks to educate the legal community through its programs and publications about how limited constitutional government based on the rule of law can have a positive effect on law and public policy.
