Developing the Next Generation to Defend your Religious Freedom

"Blackstone was a key formative experience, and I don’t know where I’d be without it."Jason A.
"My Blackstone experience has absolutely changed the way I view law, law school, politics, and policy."Phillip W.
"Being at Blackstone, you realize we’re no longer alone. We have this whole network and support system of people who believe the same things and that are there to encourage and support us…and help us promote our Christian values."Katie I.
"If I hadn’t done the Blackstone Fellowship, I would be, first of all, less of an attorney, and second of all, less of a person now. It really gave me the legal and theological foundation for my worldview."Michael B.
Every year, more than 200 American law schools indoctrinate thousands of future lawyers with radical, anti-Christian concepts and ideas.
So in 2000, Alliance Defending Freedom launched the Blackstone Legal Fellowship to equip a new generation of Christian legal professionals to defend your religious freedom for years to come.
Each summer, this world-class leadership development program provides intensive training to some of the best and brightest Christian law students in America and abroad. During the unique nine-week program, these law students gain a thorough understanding of the U.S. Constitution, accurate knowledge of our nation’s history and religious liberty, practical legal work experience, and career guidance from top Christian legal experts.
Blackstone Graduates Transform the Legal System
So far, more than 1,200 Blackstone interns have graduated from this life-changing program, and many are already rising to positions of influence and leadership:
- in government, as staff at the U.S. Department of Justice, for key members of Congress, as legal counsel for a governor, and as a state solicitor general
- at prominent national law firms
- as editors for scholarly law journals
- as law clerks for judges at state and federal courts
- as professors or instructors at colleges and universities
The Blackstone Legal Fellowship is intentionally redeeming the legal system by transforming law students – many from the nation’s most respected law schools — and equipping them to change the culture.
Invest in the Future of Your Religious Freedom
The summer training at the Blackstone Legal Fellowship is the beginning of a life-long investment we’re making in the lives of these Christian law students, who are being equipped to preserve your religious liberty throughout their careers and for generations to come.
