The Federalist Society
Alyssa Bernard, President
Michael Shpunt, VicePresident
The purpose of the Federalist Society is to foster critical thought and debate about the application of conservative and libertarian principles to the law. The Federalist Society embraces the principle that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to the integrity of the Constitution of the United States of America, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is - not what it should be. The Federalist Society seeks both to promote an awareness of these principles and to further their application through its activities.
The Federalist Society also seeks to increase the recognition of the MSU College of Law as a leader in the intellectual market place of ideas and legal education.
