The Federalist Society: How Conservatives Took the Law Back from Liberals

by Michael Avery and Danielle McLaughlin

 

Over the last thirty years, the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies has grown into an organization with extraordinary influence over American law and politics. Although the organization is unknown to the average citizen, this group of intellectuals has managed to monopolize the selection of federal judges, take over the Department of Justice, and control legal policy in the White House.


How did this happen? How did this group of conservatives succeed in moving their theories into the mainstream of legal thought?

What is the range of positions of those associated with the Federalist Society in areas of legal and political controversy?

Join the Rappaport Center and Wellesley College Political Science Professor Nancy Scherer and authors Michael Avery and Danielle McLaughlin for an in depth look at this prominent group.

 The event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited,
so RSVP to reserve your seat today. Lunch will be served.
