Student Organizations

Federalist Society

The Federalist Society is an organization of practicing attorneys, law professors and students dedicated to bringing conservative and libertarian ideas into law schools and the organized Bar. The student and lawyer chapters sponsor debates, speeches and symposia across the country to advance the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of powers between the branches and levels of government must be preserved and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be.
