Inside the Federalist Society

David Montgomery at the Washington Post has written the best piece I’ve read on the Federalist Society in a long, long time. For example: 99% of what the society does isn’t about judicial selection.

I’ve been active in the Society since not long after its founding, and Montgomery keeps hitting the target. For example: if you make the rounds of the society’s events, you will get exposed to a stellar array of liberal and left legal talent, because the organization is serious about bringing in top-drawer opponents for debates and panels. Likewise with the decentralization of the Society’s activity — the fact that the bulk of its long-term impact arises organically from interactions among its members rather than being instigated by its national office. Good reading [Stars and Stripes reprint]
