NRL Interns, Academy Students on Board for the Summer

    National Right to Life: “Summer brings three things to Washington: 90 degree days, tourists from around the world, and some of the country’s best and brightest college students for summer internships. Every year, National Right to Life hosts young men and women from across the country as part of both our college internship program and the National Right to Life Academy . . . This is the second year National Right to Life has participated in the program and we are thrilled to welcome Jon Scharfenberger, Mark Guillaudeu, and Jess Brown. Additionally, Wesley Robinson, a law student at Villanova University School of Law, will clerk in the Powell Center for Medical Ethics as part of the Alliance Defense Fund’s Blackstone Fellowship Program . . . ”

Two Spots Open for NRLC Summer Academy Program

    NRLC: “Summer at the National Right to Life office offers a refreshing change of pace with the arrival of a number of college students to participate in the NRLC internship and Academy programs. Different than a normal internship, the National Right to Life Academy is an intensive summer training course for college students in the right to life movement and issues. Students delve into the history and philosophy of the Movement, as well as seriously studying the various policy proposals and arguments related to each pro-life issue, from abortion the denial of lifesaving medial treatment . . . Another Academy alumnus has been accepted to the Blackstone Legal Fellowship, sponsored by the Alliance Defense Fund. The network of Academy alumni is a fresh source of vitality for a movement whose greatest strength may be its faithful endurance . . . ”

Advocates for Life

‘Advocates for Life’: Initiative Aims to Organize Pro-Life Students in 200 Law Schools

    “. . . The idea was hatched by [Kellie] Fiedorek and several other participants in the Blackstone Legal Fellowship, an annual summer school for 110 second-year law students put on by the Alliance Defense Fund. The ADF began as a fund-raising organization to support legal cases in defense of traditional marriage, the right to life and freedom of religion. Now it has 40 litigators of its own working on cases and runs both the Blackstone Legal Fellowship for students and the National Litigation Academy to train practicing lawyers in pro-life and other legal issues. ‘Several of us last summer were talking about the great support we were getting from Blackstone and went from there to what a need there was for pro-life students on campus for the same support,’ said Fiedorek, who just graduated from Ave Maria University’s law program. The Alliance Defense Fund’s Mat Bowman says Advocates for Life will be a powerful ally in the ADF’s own efforts to ‘educate the next generation of lawyers in the best legal arguments for the protection of innocent life. . . ”
