NLC: Religious Liberty Session
Attending the religious liberty session reminds me why so many people come each year to the National Lawyers Convention—they can hear honest debates on important legal issues by people of differing views who know their stuff. Sadly, at most U.S. law schools, the Federalist Society is the only venue where law students can see their professors have to defend their positions against people who are not their students, and, in fact, are peers in training and experience. On so many issues, people want to hear both sides and make up their minds. The national convention holds these debates for the lawyers and other attendees. There is something so robust, so American, to hear vigorous debates on the rule of law and how to interpret the Constitution properly. The Federalist Society’s dedication to quality debates on the law will ensure many well-attended conventions in the future.
