Liberty 101 is an online course produced by Students For Liberty and Learn Liberty in which you will learn about the principles of a free society from a libertarian perspective. Explore 10 fundamental principles for a free and prosperous society as they relate to the philosophy, economics, and law.

Whether you want to learn the basics of liberty from the movement’s forefathers or explore advanced topics from contemporary thought leaders, SFL’s got you covered. Our literature section features six book to download as a free PDF or you can order physical copies for your student group at only the cost of shipping.

Booking speakers for your student organization can be a great cost on your club’s time and budget. SFL is here to help with a streamlined list of libertarian experts willing to give a talk to your student group via Skype or Google Hangouts at no cost to you.

Since 2011, Students For Liberty has partnered with the Liberty Fund, Inc. to host weekend conferences for students to develop their intellectual understanding of liberty. Anyone who’s attended one of these exclusive events can testify to what an intellectually stimulating and fun experience they are. Participants read a packet of intellectually stimulating literature relating to a topic or theme curated by Liberty Fund’s network of academics and discuss their findings in a friendly round-table setting.

SFL’s Virtual Reading Groups operate like Liberty Fund Conferences, in which participants are given a list of readings on the intellectual underpinnings of a free society and are then given the opportunity to share their own thoughts on the readings with each other. By creating a space for active discussion with other intellectually engaged students, led by capable and informed discussion leaders, VRGs give participants a unique chance to truly delve into a text in ways they might not have been able to on their own.

Throughout the years, SFL has amassed a library of recorded webinars from some of the leading libertarian voices about numerous topics in philosophy, politics, and economics. How can government fix the higher education bubble? What is Ayn Rand’s theory of natural rights? Tune in to our videos for answers to these questions and many more.

In line with SFL’s big-tent philosophy, Senior Campus Coordinator Cory Massimino put together a digital resource bank for students interested in the intersection between libertarianism and the left. Check it out for information on libertarian feminism, left-anarchism, and collective organizing.



  • It must be something amazing and unique to gather all great young minds across of Europe to fight for an idea, for liberty! Being 'Heralds of freedom’, as they call us in my country, means to think progressive, constructive and as a great leader not for those who will follow you but for those who will learn from you. I learned that by becoming a member of European Students For Liberty

  • “Students For Liberty allowed me to meet a lot of different people who think the same way I do. With SFL, there is no country where you are a stranger, and this network is incredibly empowering in terms of helping young people understand that a desire for liberty connects people across the world. This has helped me do business across different markets.”

  • Advanced Events Training was very useful for me as I developed some of my organizational skills, had a chance to listen to many interesting speakers and to organize my first event with more than 250 participants!

  • We were born in an extraordinary era; there have been a lot of political and social changes in the world during last decades. Due to Students For Liberty the first active libertarian youth movement emerged and is already playing a crucial role in defending and promoting liberty worldwide. Thanks to SFL we find ourselves standing united on the right side of the history - changing the word to a freer place.

  • Liberty 101 is very helpful … to any[one] who wants to learn about liberty. It’s so simple and clearly explains what life in a free society is. It’s very consistent and the speakers know how to take the best examples to help you understand what they preach. I can also say that the course can help a young student to question the society he lives in, to question himself about the laws that he obeys, about the legitimacy of the institutions that he is member of, [and] about the legality of the decisions that his government has taken.

  • “I would not have had this impact in Greece if it wasn’t for the SFL network. It was only after meeting different students from around Europe that I was inspired to write. Before the retreat, I hadn't fully thought about writing as a tool to promote the ideas of liberty in Greece. Thanks to SFL's network, my writing continues to drive conversations.”
  • ESFL has given me the opportunity to travel and meet numerous liberty lovers from all over the world, but most importantly, it has empowered me and given me resources to fight for something I care: individual liberty. When I know that I have the support of the ESFL network, I feel capable of accomplishing things that I wouldn’t have thought myself capable only one year ago. What I love the most about ESFL is that we do not get involved in the dirty game of politics. We care about ideas and the spread of those ideas among the people that will shape tomorrow’s society: students.
