ADF Blackstone Summer Fellowship (ATTENTION: 1L CLS Members)
The Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) is sponsoring an awesome Fellowship opportunity primarily for interested first year law students who are highly motivated and capable. Applicants compete for 20-30 available seats in each Fellowship class. A limited number of upper level students may also be accepted. The Blackstone Fellowship is a National Training Program for Future Leaders in Law and has three main objectives:
(Various locations: June 19 - Aug 4)
(Texas: Aug 5 - 12)
The application package has more details regarding the fellowship. The fellowship is for this coming summer and ADF must receive all applications by March 1, 2000. You do not have to be a member of the National CLS Organization to apply. However, if your Phase II assignment is with the National CLS Center for Law and Religious Freedom, you would likely need to join the National CLS Organization (membership is something they require of all their interns I believe).
The applications are extensive and so if you are sure you want to
apply, you might want to pick up a copy to review over the Christmas break.
of the application will be available in the CLS office. If
you have questions or are interested in taking a look at the application
package contact Ben Barr (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Cynthia Ferguson (email@example.com)
