On Jan. 6, 2016, Gov. Doug Ducey of Arizona announced the appointment of TFAS alumnus Clint Bolick (ICPES 78) to the state’s Supreme Court.
A legal pioneer, Bolick has argued and won cases in the United States Supreme Court, the Arizona Supreme Court and state and federal courts from coast to coast. He has won landmark precedents defending school choice, freedom of enterprise and private property rights and challenging corporate subsidies and racial classifications.
Bolick currently serves as vice president for litigation at the Goldwater Institute, and is co-founder of the Institute for Justice. Prior to joining the Goldwater Institute, Bolick served as president of the Alliance for School Choice.
In 2003, the TFAS Alumni Council chose Bolick as the recipient of its inaugural Alumni Achievement Award.
Despite his many achievements, Bolick still finds time to give back to TFAS. He frequently gives lectures to TFAS students and has spoken at our supporter conferences and regional events, providing testimonials about the impact of TFAS programs.
While giving remarks at a conference in Arizona, Bolick said,
“It’s an honor to represent The Fund for American Studies as a proud alumnus. It is one of the few organizations that makes a profound difference in the most critical of ways, and that is by touching the minds and lives of young people.”
Bolick is one of 15,000 TFAS alumni who are forging careers in law, journalism, public policy, philanthropy and international affairs. TFAS programs inspire these future leaders to make a difference in their communities and throughout the world by upholding the values essential to the preservation and success of a free society.
