Membership in the Federalist Society is open to all. You do not need to be a lawyer, a law student, or have anything to do with the legal profession. The Federalist Society is committed to 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. If you have an interest in these principles, then join us!
