Blackstone Legal Fellowship is not a culmination . . . it's a beginning
Blackstone Legal Fellowship is a leadership training programme that brings together exceptional Christian law students and prepares them for careers marked by integrity and excellence. It is based in the US and run by Alliance Defending Freedom. Since 2000, Alliance Defending Freedom has trained more than 1,800 law students from over 225 law schools in 21 different countries.
The Fellowship begins with a nine-week summer leadership training programme (June – August). This includes three weeks of seminars on topics such as legal philosophy, practising law with integrity and excellence, career development, and cultural engagement. Interns also spend six weeks in legal internships across the world, when they work with non-profits, governmental entities, or small law firms, among others.
The nine-week programme is a beginning, not a culmination. Interns emerge with a professional network, enduring friendships, and knowledge that will serve them throughout their careers. Those selected to become Fellows at the end of the summer also receive ongoing training, resources, and support through an international community.
