The Harvard Federalist Society is a group of conservative, libertarian, and moderate law students.
The Society’s chief goal is to foster balanced and open debate about the fundamental principles of individual freedom, limited government, and judicial restraint. Membership is open to all. Our members hold diverse and often conflicting views on a broad range of issues.
The Society stands for three main principles:
- The state exists to preserve freedom.
- The separation of powers is central to our Constitution.
- It is the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be.
