Federalist Society

For Support Of The Article I Project On Congress

Overview
The Federalist Society has had a profound impact on the American political system in the three decades of its existence. Its members have put a distinctive stamp on both the theory and practice of judicial and executive power in the United States. The Society has not focused nearly as much on the appropriate role of Congress and its members in our constitutional order. Given the recent shifts of power from Congress to the executive and judicial branches, the time is ripe for the Society to consider in more depth the importance of Congress in our system of government. This grant would support the Society as it undertakes the Article I Project: Congress as Designed by the Framers and Contemporary Applications.

for support of the Article 1 Initiative  
The mission of the Federalist Society’s Article I Initiative is to examine Congress’ rightful place in the constitutional order. The initiative is nonpartisan; it aims to bring the left and the right together, to ensure that the constitutional balance leans heavily toward the institution that is intended to be most representative of the American people. By engaging law students, legal practitioners, respected scholars, legislative staffers, and members of Congress, the initiative creates a corpus of educational resources and scholarship that promotes the structural intention of the U.S. Constitution—federalism, the separation of powers, and the rule of law.
