Since its creation, the Student Division of the Federalist Society has played an integral role on law school campuses. Through its numerous conferences, programs, and publications, the Student Division seeks to accomplish three principal goals:
- Fostering debate among students, academics, legal practitioners, and public policy experts at the law school level
- Countering the tide of orthodox liberal ideology and combatting the radicalism that has flooded our nation’s law schools
- Creating a network of student leaders who will affect positive change in the legal establishment
Law School Chapters
The cornerstone of the Federalist Society Student Division is its active speakers program. The Society sponsors speeches and debates at law school chapters around the country. These high quality presentations have enhanced the intellectual atmostphere at the nation’s law schools and have also attracted many outstanding students to the Society. Despite obvious philosophical disagreements, many law school administrators and faculty members welcome our programs because of their extraordinary quaulity. Indeed, the tremendous repsonse to our speakers program has clearly demonstrated that the Society’s efforts over the last two dcades have made a remarkable difference.
