The Chicago Lawyers’ Chapter of the Federalist Society
A Tavern Debate
Resolved: Those who have traded liberty for security will soon find they have neither.
When it comes to balancing liberty and security, where do you stand? Are you willing to sacrifice some of your liberty in the interest of protecting each other and our country? Is such a sacrifice essential to maintaining the true essence of our liberty? Or will such a sacrifice lead not only to ever greater losses of our liberty, but that of our security as well?
What say you? Come join the debate!
As always, this tavern debate is an audience participation event, with potential speakers (a/k/a attendees) being provided food and a variety of libations for almost any taste or temperament.

When & Where
Chicago Federalist Society
The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order. It 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 Society seeks both to promote an awareness of these principles and to further their application through its activities. This entails reordering priorities within the legal system to place a premium on individual liberty, traditional values, and the rule of law. It also requires restoring the recognition of the importance of these norms among lawyers, judges, law students and professors. In working to achieve these goals, the Society has created a conservative and libertarian intellectual network that extends to all levels of the legal community. The Society takes no set position on legal issues, but promotes debate on a variety of historical, current, and developing topics - confident that the truth will out, and it will triumph if men and women of integrity act in accordance therewith.
