"If a practical knowledge and a just sense of these rights and these duties were diffused among the citizens, and properly impressed upon their hearts and minds; how great, how beneficial, how lasting would be their fruits!"

- James Wilson

The animating principle behind each of the programs at the James Wilson Institute is simple: Build a college of like-minded judges, lawyers, and scholars who share a deep respect for the Natural Law and a determination for its restoration in the academy, courts, and other American legal institutions.

Since our inception, we have not strayed from this purpose. And what was once a kind of best-kept-secret has now turned into one of the most in-demand legal educational organizations in the country. Our programs have been, and will remain, the keys to our success.
