Federalist Society

One of the nation's most influential legal organizations, the Federalist Society is an organization of conservatives and libertarians seeking reform of the current American legal system in accordance with a textualist or originalist interpretation of the U.S. Constitution. The organization 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, not what it should be. The Willamette University College of Law chapter of the Federalist Society seeks to both promote an awareness of these principles and to further their application.
