The Federalist Society put on ten events this year at the law school – bringing in prominent speakers from a variety of backgrounds to speak on legal issues. Thank you for all those who attended our debates. I would also like to send a big thank you to the Federalist Society officers, Rebekah Gray, Brandon Johnson, and Vince Kline, who were essential in making this another successful year for the organization.
The Federalist Society will be holding elections at 12:15 on April 9th in room 075. If you are interested in a position or have questions, please reach out to April Wimberg (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Topic: The recent controversy over the HHS “Preventive Services Mandate” has surfaced serious questions about religious freedom and conscience protection. Should government force employers and insurance providers to include contraceptives and abortifacients in health insurance plans? When, if ever, should government accommodate conscientious objections to paying for these drugs and devices? What limits do legal protections of religious liberty (including the First Amendment) impose on government power in this area?
