Blackstone Legal Fellowship

Your Gift to Will Equip the Next Generation of Christian Leaders — Blackstone Legal Fellowship

The quest to win the hearts and minds of the next generation of leaders is intense. But it’s nothing new.

As a law student in the 1970s, ADF Founder Alan Sears was no stranger to the opposition directed at Christian law students and their values.

The students who stand firm in their faith often face rejection and hostility from faculty, administrators, and even their peers.

It’s overwhelming, it’s demoralizing, and most of all, it’s isolating.

Alan knew that something needed to be done to help these talented young people see that they’re not alone.

He envisioned a program where future leaders could be encouraged, equipped, and connected with like-minded peers and accomplished professionals.

Thanks to God’s blessing and the prayers and financial support of people like you, this vision led to the creation of the Blackstone Legal Fellowship.

To continue offering this unrivaled training program, though, we need your help...

When you support Blackstone, you support the next generation of Christian leaders

Shaping our legal system—and the laws that govern our society—doesn’t start in a courtroom. It starts in the classroom. It’s in university and law school classrooms that the next generation of leaders solidify their legal, social, and political worldviews.

This summer, 181 exceptional Christian law students came together to prepare for careers marked by integrity and excellence.

Most of these students were from the top 25 law schools in the country—universities like Yale and Harvard. And nearly 75% came from top-50 law schools.

The program consists of three weeks of comprehensive training on legal philosophy, constitutional law, history, emerging cultural issues, and career development. Along with this education, the students take part in summer internships at top law firms, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies across the U.S.

Since Blackstone was launched more than 20 years ago, it has grown exponentially. After starting with just 24 students, today more than 2,600 attorneys have benefitted from the generosity of people like you!

Your gift today will help fund the next Blackstone class, and to serve as a lifelong investment in the next generation of Christian leaders who will be equipped to protect your most cherished freedoms.

Your investment in Blackstone pays off!

“I felt so alone.”

That’s how many students describe their law school experience before Blackstone. But time after time, these students graduate Blackstone feeling reenergized in their passion for the law and fully equipped to carry on the mission God called them to.

Through Blackstone, they see that there is a place for them in the halls of government, at the helm of corporations and prestigious law firms, and in positions of influence in their communities—places where they can make a real difference.

And they are making a difference. The program is working.

  • Over a hundred Blackstone Fellows are in full-time nonprofit work advocating for our rights and the common good, including many fighting for religious freedom, free speech, and the sanctity of life.
  • Many other Fellows work in state government, advising and representing the state in order to safeguard liberty.
  • Dozens also work in academia, including as tenured and tenure-track faculty at top law schools and universities.
  • And Fellows continue to secure clerkship positions at a higher rate than the graduates of Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and the University of Chicago schools of law.

Blackstone gives these students the education and tools they need to defend your constitutional freedoms—whether it be in the courtroom, in the halls of government, or in other leadership positions.

But each year, we have to turn away dozens of qualified applicants. Our resources only go so far.

It’s hard to turn away these exceptional students, which is why we need you!

Continuing the work of Blackstone—and even growing it—is not possible without the generous financial support of people like you.

Will you make a gift today and help train the next generation of leaders?
