How Can We Advance First Principles in Constitutional Law?

The Robertson Center for Constitutional Law advances first principles in constitutional law, including textualism, freedom of speech, separation of powers, federalism, judicial modesty, and religious liberty.

The Center promotes these ideas in the academy, in the courts, and with the American people. It will publish white papers and scholarly articles; host distinguished scholars, judges, and attorneys; advise foreign governments; and support like-minded organizations defending first principles in our courts. In doing all of this work, the Center will help train the next generation of lawyers and leaders to defend our Constitution.
