Religious Freedom Committee
As members of the J. Reuben Clark Law Society, we affirm the strength brought to the law by a lawyer's personal, religious conviction. In doing so, we implicitly affirm the great importance of religious liberty to the rule of law. Without religious liberty, religious conviction is relegated to the shadows. We therefore appreciate efforts to strengthen religious freedoms for all faiths. Members of the Law Society are encouraged to serve in the communities in which they live and to join forces with other like-minded individuals and groups to educate, inform and remind lawyers, decision makers and others of the critical importance of religious liberty to the existence of all free societies.

However, the J. Reuben Clark Law Society does:
- Encourage its members to play a role as responsible citizens in their communities, including becoming informed about issues and voting in elections.
- Support constitutional principles of religious freedom, and encourage its members to defend, advocate, plead, and appeal for the religious freedom for which and upon which the U.S. Constitution was founded.
- Expect its members to engage in the political process in an informed and civil manner, respecting the fact that members of the Society come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences and may have differences of opinion in partisan political matters.
