Life and Health-Threatening Pregnancies and Abortion Law: Tragic Reality or Phantom Fears?
This past semester we were thrilled to grateful to have the chance to discuss such an important and timely topic with two expert speakers. We welcomed Professor Teresa Collett, from the University of St. Thomas, to engage in dialogue with our Professor Renée Landers. We were pleased to also offer CLE credit for this event as well!
Alumni, Socials, and Donuts
Our chapter had a wonderful time through social and networking events this past semester. We enjoyed welcoming back our alumni and appreciated their wisdom at our Alumni Panel and Mixer. We also hosted a morning Coffee and Donuts event for students, which included both gluten-free and dairy-free options. These events were enjoyed by our Fed Soc members, and friends. We look forward to hosting more similar events in the semester ahead!
Fall semester brought with it our chapter’s first Book Club — hosted by our President Emeritus, Brendan Kelly. Together, the club is reading through the Federalist Papers.
Each of the meetings brought with it a chance to enjoy good food and fellowship, and sometimes also awesome views (see below)!
Be on the lookout for more Book Club meetings in the coming months!
Our chapter hosted a dialogue between national thought leader on Constitutional Law, Josh Blackman, and Suffolk’s own Rene Reyes. We had a phenomenal turnout and an attentive audience.
We were also able to offer CLE credit to attendees for this event — and attendees enjoyed good food and dialogue together before the conversations kicked off.
A very successful event!

A Recap of Suffolk Fed Soc’s Fall 2021 Events
The Fall 2021 semester was packed with great events and it was amazing to see such enthusiasm and involvement, from 1L’s to evening students. Below is a recap of some of the great events we had!
Fed Soc started off the year by celebrating Constitution Day. Members spent the day tabling and handing out pocket constitutions.
On September 21st Suffolk Fed Soc had Professor Josh Blackman in to give us a preview of the Supreme Court’s fall docket.
On October 5th, Suffolk Federalist Society hosted a debate between CUNY Professor Barry Latzer and Suffolk Professor Stephen Cody on Mass Incarceration in the United States. Before the debate, Professor Latzer had lunch with several Fed Soc members!
Then, on October 18th, Fed Soc hosted a panel discussion with University of Illinois Professor Robin Fretwell Wilson and Suffolk Professor Renee Landers who worked to answer the question, “When should government turn one citizen against another?”
Throughout the semester we hosted monthly social gatherings at Scholars, bringing together current Suffolk students and Federalist Society members to mingle and get to know one another outside of school.
On November 19th, Fed Soc organized an alumni panel with several former Suffolk Federalist Society members coming back to Suffolk to talk about their careers and experiences with the Federalist Society.
This semester, Suffolk Fed Soc members also attended the National Lawyers Convention at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington DC, volunteering and socializing with other law students and lawyers from across the country.
