Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Academy

The Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Academy is a world-class program that seamlessly combines unmatched legal training with an unwavering commitment to Christian principles. Whatever your area of practice, the Legal Academy will equip you to effectively advocate for religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family. In most cases, the training includes 12-15 hours of high-quality CLE, focused on these crucial issues.* Your participation will also enable—and inspire—you to become part of an ever-expanding global movement to transform our legal culture.

The Legal Academy brings together like-minded attorneys from around the globe, thriving in all areas of private practice and public service. As a Legal Academy participant, you will engage with renowned faculty and participate in a scholarly examination of issues such as 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.

To date, nearly 1,800 lawyers have participated in this unique training program. We hope you will join us at the next Alliance Defending Freedom Academy, on July 5-9, 2015, in Southern California.

Admission to the Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Academy is competitive. If you are selected to participate, Alliance Defending Freedom will underwrite the cost of your airfare, lodging, materials, and most meals. Your completed application must be submitted by April 24, 2015.
