The Federalist Society at Yale Law School is committed to encouraging open and honest debate 
on the fundamental legal issues of our day.




Founded in 1982 as the Society's flagship chapter, YLS FedSoc remains a vibrant intellectual community dedicated to rigorous debate of legal and public policy issues.
