Stephanie Bell was recently elected President of the Jefferson City Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society. Both Bell and Marc Ellinger have served on the Chapter's Steering Committee since the organization was formed in 2017. The Jefferson City Lawyers Chapter hosts several CLE events each year, including a day-long event at the Capitol in conjunction with the St. Louis and Kansas City Chapters.
The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order. It is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be.
