Federalist Society Student Chapter leaders spent the summer planning for a great fall semester, and the school year has started off with a bang! Chapters have recruited new members and hosted excellent events featuring fantastic FedSoc speakers. The 2023 National Student Symposium is already in the works, so be sure to save the date and join us in Texas!

Our Lawyers Chapters held several noteworthy events this summer through early fall. There were four statewide conferences in September alone, which included headline speakers such as Judge Jeff Sutton and former AG Bill Barr. See inside for photos of these events, and save the date for the next statewide or regional conference near you! Our Young Lawyers Chapters also continue to grow and host great events. The Practice Groups have been actively hosting events and webinars, some of which are featured in these pages. Watch recordings of some of these on our YouTube page at youtube.com/thefederalistsociety. The Faculty Division’s annual James Kent Academy for aspiring academics was a great success, as was its co-sponsored Supreme Court Preview for the October 2022 Term.

Our Regulatory Transparency Project has been releasing excellent new videos and podcasts, as well as hosting events. One such event was co-sponsored with our Capitol Hill Chapter at the Capitol Hill Club, featuring a panel discussion called Creatures of Statute: Administrative Agencies in Practice. The Freedom of Thought project and the Article I Initiative have also been active, and you can see a small sample of their work in this issue. FedSoc Studios renovated our in-house podcast studio to have video capabilities, and we look forward to continuing to produce informative legal commentary at an even higher level of quality. Please visit fedsoc.org to find upcoming events, new videos, and timely podcasts, and read new articles from the Federalist Society Review and posts on the FedSoc Blog.

We are looking forward to the 2022 National Lawyers Convention, and we hope you plan to join us at the Mayflower Hotel for an excellent slate of speakers, panels, and debates, as well as a wonderful time of FedSoc fellowship.

Finally, THANK YOU for supporting the Federalist Society these past 40 years! We could not have accomplished what we have without the generous contributions of money, time, and talent by our members. The photo collage on the cover of this issue shows the many (much younger!) faces of just some of those who have supported us over the past four decades. We are grateful for each and every one of you.

We hope you enjoy this issue of the Federalist Paper. Please send any questions or comments to us at [email protected]. Here’s to the next 40 years!
