Deadline Approaching: AUL Legal Fellowship Program


Just a reminder that the application deadline for the AUL Legal Fellowship Program is February 1.

About the AUL Legal Fellowship Program

The AUL Summer Fellowship Program combines top flight legal work with public interest commitment. Each fellow will be mentored by an AUL attorney who will regularly meet with the fellow to answer questions, give feedback on work performance, and help further augment the value of their experience. The fellowship program will:

  • Introduce fellows to pro-life leaders, both within AUL and other organizations in the pro-life movement
  • Educate fellows on how to best have an impact at this point in our history
  • Give the fellows a solid foundation of legal experience to build on
  • Employ their talents to advance AUL’s lifesaving work

The Fellowship includes an orientation briefing fellows on AUL’s mission and vision, as well as the evolution of the pro-life movement’s strategy. Fellows will then participate in the following:

  • AUL Summer Institute: a week-long gathering that includes training sessions on pro-life issues, and public-interest, pro-life lawyering (amicus drafting, legislative drafting, etc.)
  • Social Events: occasions to take advantage of summer in Chicago, including trips to baseball games, dinners, and social hours in keeping with AUL’s appreciation for fellowship outside of the office
