Equip the next generation of Christian leaders to fight and win for your freedom!

Blackstone Legal Fellowship Logo

The battle to win the hearts and minds of the next generation of leaders is intense. But it is 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.

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 university and law school classrooms across the nation. This is where the next generation of leaders solidify their legal, social, and political worldviews.

This year, 156 exceptional Christian law students came together to prepare for careers marked by integrity and excellence.

Nearly 80% of these students came from top 50 law schools in the country—universities like Yale and Harvard.

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 spend six weeks interning in 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. Today, more than 2,400 law students have benefitted from the generosity of people like you!

Your investment in Blackstone pays off!

“I felt so alone.”

That’s the resounding theme when students describe their pre-Blackstone education experience. But time after time, these students graduate Blackstone feeling reenergized in their passions 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 110 Blackstone graduates are in full-time legal nonprofit work advocating for your religious freedom.
  • Several hundred work for federal, state, and local governments providing influence over legislation and policy.
  • A growing number are becoming law professors and business leaders.
  • Fellows continue to secure clerkship positions at a higher rate than graduates of Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and every other top law school in the country.

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 was hard to turn away these exceptional students, which is why we need you!

Growing this important program and continuing this work is not possible without the generous financial support of people like you.
