The Federalist Society’s James Kent Summer Academy is a program for law students and recent graduates who demonstrate strong potential for being leaders among a future generation of legal scholars. Participants will have an opportunity to engage in academic discourse, to learn about an academic career track, to deepen their understanding of key ideas about the law, originalism, the administrative state, and markets and the law, and to receive personalized career planning and publishing guidance. 

This all-expenses-paid conference will take place in person on August 3-6, 2022 in Annapolis, MD. The conference will include seminar-style sessions guided by a group of leading faculty, including Randy Barnett (Georgetown), Julia Mahoney (Virginia), Robert Miller (Iowa), James Stern (William & Mary), and Daniel Kelly (Notre Dame). It will also include informational sessions and workshops for professional development, and the opportunity to connect with a community of talented students and scholars. Attendees will also receive invitations to ongoing events and academic and professional development resources throughout the year.
