Federalist Society

The Federalist Society at the University of Michigan Law School is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to bringing conservative and libertarian ideas into legal education. We sponsor debates, speeches and symposia to advance our 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 is firmly committed to presenting a variety of perspectives to broaden the exposure of Michigan students and the community. By emphasizing libertarian and conservative legal scholarship, the Society provides opportunities for members to debate and discuss these ideas among themselves, and adds necessary and desirable diversity of thought to the Law School and the University community.
