We are building a community of traditionally conservative and center-right lawyers, judges, scholars, and law students dedicated to defending truth, the Constitution, and the rule of law. And we want you to be part of it.
Our legal institutions have been severely tested in recent years. And their survival requires that concerned, courageous Americans stand up in their defense. As members of the legal community, we have a special obligation to answer that call.
That’s where you come in.

But more than that, you’ll have a stake in the great legal test of our time. By becoming a member and supporting the Society for the Rule of Law, you’ll join the fight to protect the Constitution and rule and law, and help us win it.
