Former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese announced that he’s “semi-retiring” from his leadership of the Heritage Foundation’s Center for Legal and Judicial Studies.  His legacy, both at Heritage and at the Justice Department, cannot be overstated, as I wrote in the Federalist Society’s “Engage” publication last year.The piece, featuring interviews with Justice Samuel Alito, the Honorable T. Kenneth Cribb, and Mr. Meese himself concludes that the “Meese strategy” of rigorous judicial nominee selection, developing a network of supporters motivated by political principles rather than political priorities, and explaining the substantive stakes of constitutional fidelity to the public continues to be a successful path for originalist advancement.

The article is featured on the Federalist Society’s website here .  I hope you find it enlightening about the impact this great and good man continues to have on American law and policy.
