The J. Reuben Clark Law Society links arms with other attorneys around the world who are seeking to do good. As we reach out and offer our help to others striving to make a difference, we make friendships, build goodwill and provide avenues for future collaboration and cooperation.
Many communities have legal services organizations already in place. Some JRCLS Chapters, such as the Boston Chapter, act as a resource by getting to know the local legal service groups, receiving requests for pro bono work from church leaders or others, and connecting those needing legal services with groups capable of meeting their needs.
Great service can also be rendered to and through the local bar. For example, the Orange County chapter is an official affiliate of the Orange County Bar Association and is able to alert its members to the OCBA’s service opportunities.
Attorneys also provide valuable counsel and assistance to many non-profit groups, such as the Boy Scouts of America and the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty. The experiences of several attorneys who are giving or have given valuable community service can be accessed here.
