JRCLS Mission Statement
"We affirm the strength brought to the law by a lawyer’s personal religious conviction. We strive through public service and professional excellence to promote fairness and virtue founded upon the rule of law."
Regarding the practice of law, President James E. Faust has said:
Our lawyers need to be more than successful advocates. We need to bring our sacred religious convictions and standards to the practice of law. To do otherwise would bring an inconsistency to our character. There always needs to be a connection between having an involvement in the law and living the gospel.
As lawyers who subscribe to these ideals, we periodically meet for social activities and instruction, continuing legal education seminars and family events. We are especially reaching out to new practitioners and law students as they face the challenge of finding the proper balance between their professional and personal lives and hope to provide opportunities for them to network with more experienced attorneys in the greater Puget Sound area.

JRCLS Inspirational Thought - "An excellent lawyer, John W. Davis, once observed: True, we build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures--unless as amateurs for our own principal amusement. There is little of all that we do [as lawyers] which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state."
John K. Carmack, "Unmeasured Factors of Success", Life in the Law, 2004, 25
