The Federalist Society is a group of conservative and libertarian law students, lawyers, professors, and judges interested in the current state of the legal order. We believe the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of powers is central to the Constitution, and that it is the duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be. Most importantly, however, we believe that our legal system ought to concern itself foremost with the advancement of individual liberty.
