Are you interested in the role of the American legal institutions in limiting government? Do you want to engage in an online interactive discussion the history of the judiciary and the ways judicial action can limit the size and scope of government? Would you like to win a free copy of the critically-acclaimed new book “Terms of Engagement: How Our Courts Should Enforce the Constitution’s Promise of Limited Government”? Then join us for an exciting new online webinar this upcoming Thursday evening at 8:00pm EST / 5:00pm PST with Institute for Justice Senior Attorney Clark Neily. See below for further details about the webinar and book contest.

The U.S. Constitution was designed to protect individuals from the illegitimate exercise of government power. Unfortunately, the judiciary’s abdication of its duty to serve as a meaningful check on the other branches has led to an explosion in the cost, size and intrusiveness of government. In this webinar, Institute for Justice Senior Attorney Clark Neily will explain how this result came to be and why it can only be remedied through the consistent application of “judicial engagement” —or a genuine quest for truth regarding the government’s ends and means in all constitutional cases, with no exceptions.

We here at Students For Liberty want to share some of the many success stories of liberty worldwide, so we have launched a series of “Facts For Liberty” in an attempt to tell you just why we think that liberty is the way to solve many of the world’s problems.

The story we’re trying to tell here isn’t about how one reform suddenly turned everything alright – many of the countries mentioned still have many issues – but rather that a little good can come out of trusting each other and believing that the market and the communities are able to solve problems better than centralized agencies and politicians. Feel very free to share these facts on social media or print them out and use them on campus for tabling purposes.

New Zealand’s complete legalization of prostitution has led to less violence and safer streets

Since New Zealand completely legalized prostitution – as well as brothels –  sex workers feel safer and are now protected by labor laws and the police. On top, it hasn’t led to an increase in prostitution. In other words: Legalizing prostitution protects the sex workers and keep people out of crime.

China’s Zheijiang province is both the most free-market and  wealthiest province in China

While China might not be the most free country in the world, they have still come a long way from where they used to be. Such a large country of China has, of course, large differences between various provinces. Not surprisingly, the most prosperous province is also the least regulated.

England and Wales liberalized their pub closing laws – leading to less traffic accidents on weekend nights.

England and Wales used to have laws forcing pubs to close at 11 p.m. – which in many cases led to binge drinking combined with drunk driving. The goverment decided to soften the law and allowing the pubs to close as late as 5 a.m. The result? Traffic accidents on Friday and Saturday nights fell drastically.

The Netherlands were the first country to legalize same-sex marriage – it hasn’t affected the divorce rate


The main argument you hear against same-sex marriage is that it somehow weakens the institution of marriage. How come the divorce rates in a country like The Netherlands are 15% lower than in the US?
