The Federalist Society released their latest installment in a series of videos featuring JWI Founder and Director, Professor Hadley Arkes, discussing the natural law foundations of our Constitution and jurisprudence.

Join the Anchoring Truths Podcast team and Professor Kevin C. Walsh from Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law for a discussion over Prof. Walsh's fascinating talk with Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

The James Wilson Institute’s Mission is to restore to a new generation of lawyers, judges, and citizens the understanding of the American Founders about the first principles of our law and the moral grounds of their own rights.
