Letter from the Chair



Welcome to the website home of the J. Reuben Clark Law Society! We are a society of attorneys and law students who strive to use our legal education and training to do good. We work to inspire law students and lawyers around the world to serve the communities in which they live and remain focused on the highest ideals of the legal profession. Here are a few things we are involved in:
 
1.   Law Society chapters in many locations regularly organize pro bono and other service efforts, mentor law students and new attorneys, provide employment assistance, hold award dinners that recognize excellence among lawyers and judges and host conferences and other public events to strengthen the legal profession. We strive to link arms with other legal societies, non-profit organizations and local bar associations to bring the power of our legal training and experience directly to those who need it the most. As we work to make a difference, we hope to make new friendships, build goodwill and provide avenues for future collaboration and cooperation. 
 
2.   We are also a society which highly values religious liberty. We know that without religious freedom, the loss of other freedoms is almost certain to follow. Members of the Law Society are encouraged to join forces with other like-minded individuals and groups to educate, inform and remind decision makers and others of the critical importance of religious freedom to the existence of all free societies.
 
3.   The Law Society is a repository of the collected wisdom of prominent lawyers, judges, law professors and others who, for the past 30 years, have spoken at a variety of law society gatherings. Through publications, firesides and continuing education, the Law Society models and inspires professional excellence. The collective insights of many accomplished and devoted men and women are thus allowed to remind, motivate and train generations of lawyers as they negotiate the often-treacherous currents that run continuously through the practice of law.
 
4.   The Law Society brings lawyers and law students together. Annual, regional and local conferences, firesides and luncheons allow lawyers and students around the world to assemble, receive instruction and share ideas. The Law Society also provides avenues of learning, service and collaboration for many who may be using their law degrees in non-traditional ways.
 
With professional skills and experience grounded in a tradition of faith, members of the J. Reuben Clark Law Society have, for the past 30 years, sought to strengthen the law through public service and professional excellence. In the coming year, we will sharpen our focus on key objectives and continue the great work of so many who have come before us. We hope you will join us in helping the Law Society become an even more powerful force for good in the world.
