The Well FED Society

This is the weblog for the University of Baltimore Federalist Society. Come back regularly for updates about our meetings and events, and you might even be treated to some original thought.

This is the inaugural posting on the Weblog for the University of Baltimore Federalist Society (UBFS). What we're going to do with this blog is keep members and interested persons up-to-date as to the goings-on with our organization.

Of course, since this weblog is run by the officers of the UBFS, all postings will be consistent with the goals of the national Federalist Society organization.

Below, I'm shamelessly copying the purpose from the Federalist Society's webpage because it expresses principles which do motivate this organization.

  • Law schools and the legal profession are currently strongly 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 for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order. It is founded on 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.
  • The Society seeks both to promote an awareness of these principles and to further their application through its activities. This entails reordering priorities within the legal system to place a premium on individual liberty, traditional values, and the rule of law. It also requires restoring the recognition of the importance of these norms among lawyers, judges, and law professors.
  • In working to achieve these goals, the Society has created a conservative and libertarian intellectual network that extends to all levels of the legal community.

In addition to updating members with news about meetings and events, this weblog will include postings that link to articles of interest to members, UB students, law student, and legal professionals generally. But wait, there's more! This site will also (occasionally) include original thought about law and public policy issues written by the executive board of the UBFS, and possibly, by our members, by permission.

If you're not a University of Baltimore student, and would like some more information about our school, and especially the law school, follow the links! You can get whatever information you want at the official sites, or at least a phone number to call to get somebody to answer your questions. The great thing about UB is that it provides a quality education without the snobbery that can be noticed at some universities. If you've got a question, the admission's staff (at least at the law school) is more than happy to help.

The UBFS's wise and gracious faculty advisor is Professor Mortimer "Tim" Sellers. He's one of the very best professors in the entire University System of Maryland, and that was recognized recently by his being named the University System of Maryland Regents Professor.

So... Welcome to The Well FED Society.
