If the 2016 election taught us anything, it’s that much of the battle for the future of our republic will happen in the courts. Our federal court system serves as the last line of defense for protecting the vision the Founding Fathers set in motion in the Constitution some 233 years ago.

On the frontlines sits the Federalist Society and its Co-Chair, Leonard Leo. Mr. Leo has been instrumental in working to advance the concepts of originalism and textualism in the courts. He has advised President Donald Trump on judicial selection, assisted with both the Gorsuch and Kavanaugh Supreme Court selections and confirmation processes, and served as a member of the transition team. He also organized the outside coalition efforts in support of the U.S. Supreme Court Confirmations of Justices Roberts and Alito. Mr. Leo was appointed by President George W. Bush to three terms to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom as chairman.

He was also a U.S. Delegate to the UN Council and UN Commission on Human Rights during the Bush Administration. He was the recipient of the 2009 Bradley Prize, along with the other founders and directors of the Federalist Society, for his work in advancing freedom and the rule of law. He is the coeditor of Presidential Leadership: Rating the Best and the Worst in the White House, as well as the author of opinion editorials in the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post.
