 Young Lawyers Academy

The ADF Young Lawyers Academy is a unique program combining outstanding legal training and an unwavering commitment to Christian principles. It is designed for recent law school graduates and lawyers in their first few years of practice, including those working in large and mid-size firms, as well as state and federal government offices. When you attend the Young Lawyers Academy, you will receive specific resources and opportunities to engage in ADF-related issues at the outset of your career, in addition to the excellent legal training and inspiring worship and devotions offered at all Academy sessions.

Whatever your area of practice, the Young Lawyers Academy will train you to effectively advocate for religious freedom, free speech, marriage and family, parental rights, and the sanctity of life. In most cases, the training includes 6-8 hours of high-quality CLE focused on these crucial issues. Not only will the Young Lawyers Academy prepare you to integrate your faith with your work, but it will equip you with the tools to approach your career strategically and connect you with an established network to provide support and guidance in a competitive and pressure-filled environment.

Your participation will also enable and inspire you to become part of an ever-expanding movement to impact our legal culture. The Young Lawyers Academy connects you with outstanding like-minded Christian attorneys from around the United States. It provides an unrivaled opportunity to engage with renowned faculty and participate in a scholarly examination of natural law principles, constitutional jurisprudence, and worldview development. Daily worship and devotions will reinforce the importance of your core beliefs to your practice of law.

Please Note: Alliance Defending Freedom will gladly cover the cost of registration, lodging, materials, and most meals for accepted program attendees. Attendees are responsible for covering their own travel expenses to and from the venue, as well as the costs for any additional family members accompanying them.

When you apply to attend the Young Lawyers Academy, you are also applying to become an ADF Allied Attorney. The Young Lawyers Academy is available only to attorneys practicing and residing in the United States.
