The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a non-partisan group of libertarians and conservatives interested in the current state of the legal order. It is founded on the 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, and not to subvert the process of representative government by allowing activist jurists to distort law into what they think it should be. The Society seeks both to promote an awareness of these principles and to further their application through its activities including hosting debates on relevant topics of law and legal policy.
