The Board of Directors of Massachusetts Family Institute is excited to announce the Institute’s new president, Ian Huyett, effective on September 11, 2023.

Ian comes to MFI after serving as the head of litigation for Cornerstone, the family policy council in New Hampshire.

Ian Huyett is a 2018 graduate of Washington and Lee University School of Law, where he was an avid competitor in moot court competitions. As a law student, he interned with the General Counsel’s Office for “Cru,” formerly known as Campus Crusade for Christ. He completed a trial court clerkship in Staunton, Virginia before working in litigation with a regional law firm in New Hampshire.

A prolific independent scholar, Ian has written law review articles and other academic work on law and religion. As Cornerstone’s Head of Litigation, he represented over thirty churches in successfully challenging aspects of New Hampshire’s COVID-19 shutdown orders. He has also represented Christian clients in cases ranging from student free speech litigation to religious discrimination matters. Working with New Hampshire legislators, Ian drafted and successfully lobbied for multiple bills, including legislation to protect religious and civil liberties and to safeguard the most vulnerable among us.

The Board is confident that Ian will be an excellent leader and will continue to advance the mission of MFI.
