Legal Academy

The ADF Legal Academy seamlessly combines outstanding legal training with an unwavering commitment to Christian principles. At the Academy, you’ll engage with renowned faculty, receive specific resources and opportunities to engage in ADF-related issues, and join in inspiring worship and devotions each day.

Whatever your area of practice, the ADF Legal Academy will train you to effectively advocate for religious liberty, free speech, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family. The program typically includes 6-8 hours of CLE credit.

The Academy will prepare you to integrate your faith with your work and, as an ADF Allied Attorney, connect you with outstanding like-minded attorneys from around the United States who make up an ever-expanding national network that is impacting our legal culture to protect our fundamental freedoms for the next generation.

For those selected to attend the Academy, ADF will cover the cost of registration, materials, lodging, and most meals.
