Law schools are dominated by a form of orthodox liberal ideology which advocates a centralized and uniform society. While some members of the academic community have dissented from these views, by and large they are taught simultaneously with (and indeed as if they were) the law.
The Federalist Society chapter here at Suffolk Law School is a group of conservative and libertarian law students who hold a diverse array of viewpoints and are interested in the current state of the legal order. We are committed to 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.
Here at Suffolk Law, we host social events and thought-provoking discussion panels to foster a greater appreciation for the role of the separation of powers, federalism, limited constitutional government, and the rule of law in protecting individual freedom and traditional values.
