E SSENTIAL P ARTNER FOR THE C ONSERVATIVE M OVEMENT “No policy that does not rest on some philosophical public opinion can be permanently maintained.”- Abraham Lincoln Liberal policies have prevailed over the past 100 years in large measure because the liberal concept of justice – what they call “social justice” – has prevailed. The Claremont Institute provides the conservative movement with the essential, and generally missing, counter argument: the Founders’ understanding of political justice, which flows from their understanding of man, government and the characteristics of the American people. Unlike most conservative organizations, Claremont focuses not on the nuts and bolts of current policy but on how the Founders’ understanding ought to guide that policy. Claremont’s audience is the most influential conservative thinkers and doers, current and future, because it is their ideas that will shape and guide the conservative movement. The Institute’s books, fellowships, conferences, the Claremont Review of Books, and the American Mind video series constitute, in effect, a school, one dedicated to restoring the natural law principles of the American Founding. The strong, consistent support of Members maintains the Claremont Institute as an essential partner in the Conservative movement.

The Marshall Fellowship teaches law students, particularly those who will be judicial clerks, the natural law understanding of the Constitution.  A gift of $7,500 will sponsor one student in your name at a Fellowship program of your choosing.
