The ADF Student Academy is a new one-week program tailored for college upperclassmen or those who have recently graduated from college with a career direction in law, government or policy.

The student academy includes an intense core curriculum in Christian worldview, jurisprudence, common law heritage, and constitutional theory and analysis. Students will gather for lectures, seminars and individual academic assignments. Students will also receive career-focused training designed to launch them on the path to securing positions of influence.
