The Kansas City Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society
Founded in 1982, the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a non-partisan organization of 35,000 conservative and libertarian lawyers, law students, scholars, and other individuals, who are interested in the condition of the current legal order. We believe 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 Lawyers Division has active chapters in sixty cities, including Washington, D.C., New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Kansas City, St. Louis, Milwaukee, San Francisco, Denver, Atlanta, Houston, Pittsburgh, Seattle, and Indianapolis. Activities include the annual National Lawyers Convention, a Speakers Bureau for organizing lectures and debates, and 15 Practice Groups.
