About

The Federalist Society was born on the law school campuses of Harvard, Chicago, and Yale to provide a forum for debate and discussion. The Federalist Society’s Student Division continues to be the premier ideas-driven student organization on over two hundred law school campuses nationwide. Many law school faculty and administrators have come to celebrate the Society for the high quality of discourse it brings to their campuses. Student Division programming fosters a network of conservative and libertarian students eager to challenge the legal establishment as lawyers, faculty, judges, and policy makers.
