AUL Legal Fellowship Program

Every summer, law students from across the country apply for a limited number of openings in the Americans United for Life Fellowship Program. Law students with an interest in pro-life law come to Washington D.C. for a summer internship that is unparalleled.

AUL accepts first- and second-year students for up to eight weeks each summer at AUL’s Arlington, Virginia office. Mentored by an AUL attorney, each fellow is tasked with a special legal project. During their summer, they also meet regularly with AUL staff in conjunction with their work.

Qualifications for becoming an AUL Fellow include a firm commitment to life issues and demonstrated excellence both inside and outside the classroom. Additionally, we look for individuals who stand out to the faculty of their school.

The fellowship program will:

• Actively employ Fellows’ talents to advance AUL’s lifesaving work
• Give Fellows a solid foundation of legal experience to build on
• Introduce fellows to pro-life leaders, both within AUL and at other organizations in the pro-life movement
