JWI reteaches the first principles understood by the American Founders to a new generation of lawyers, professors, and judges because they are no longer being taught. 

This is only made possible by gifts from generous donors such as you.

Thank you!


The James Wilson Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All gifts made to the Institute are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.
