The ADF Summit is run by Alliance Defending Freedom, a partner of ADF International, and is an exceptional programme that seamlessly combines unmatched legal training with an unwavering commitment to Christian principles. More than 2,000 lawyers have participated in this unique programme since its establishment in 1997. More than 200 of those attendees have represented nearly 50 countries. While the topics covered—and even the structure of the Summit itself—have changed throughout the years to respond to the most pressing issues and needs of the alliance, the overarching goal remains the same: to equip attendees to effectively advocate for religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family. Attendees also become part of an ever-expanding global movement, working together to transform our legal culture.
The Summit brings together Christian attorneys from around the globe, specializing in all areas of private practice and public service. Participants 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 reinforce the importance of core beliefs to the practice of law.
