Leonard Leo serves as Executive Vice President of the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies, an organization of 46,000 individuals that is premised on advancing limited, constitutional government. In that capacity, he has helped to build a nationwide infrastructure of lawyers, judges, and business leaders who seek to foster the application of our nation’s Founding principles through the projects of the Society as well as other independent projects of mutual interest and concern in the legal and policy worlds on which they band together.

While on leave from the Federalist Society, Mr. Leo organized the outside coalition efforts in support of the Roberts and Alito U.S. Supreme Court confirmations in 2005-2006, and, in 2004, was the Bush-Cheney Presidential Campaign’s Catholic Strategist. He also served as National Co-Chairman of Catholic Outreach for the Republican National Committee.1
