About the Federalist Society

The UHLC Federalist Society is the University of Houston Law Center’s student chapter of the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policies Studies.

The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a membership organization of over 35,000 conservative and libertarian judges, lawyers, law students, and scholars interested in the current state of the legal order.  The legal profession is currently dominated by a form of orthodox liberal ideology which advocates a centralized and uniform society. In 1982, a group of students at Yale Law School founded the Federalist Society to facilitate the consideration of libertarian and conservative alternatives to this legal orthodoxy. Currently, the Student Division of the Federalist Society is represented by nearly all ABA-accredited law schools.
