Federalist Society Honored

The philanthropic Bradley Foundation, which awards grants from its $700 million endowment, recently honored The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies with a 2009 Bradley Prize.

Specifically named were the Society’s four founders: Spencer Abraham, Steven Calabresi, David McIntosh, and Lee Liberman Otis. The four founded the Society, which promotes rational interpretation of the Constitution within the judiciary, in 1982 while they were law students. It has since grown to one of the most influential organizations in politics, with hundreds of branches in law schools and bar associations around the country.

Also honored by the Foundation: William Kristol, commentator; Arnold Harberger, economist; and Martin Gilbert, historian.
