Law Society Annual Conference

Hundreds of lawyers from around the world will attend this year's annual J. Reuben Clark Law Society International Conference at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona (just 10 miles from Phoenix).  The conference will begin on Thursday, February 12, 2015 and will conclude on Saturday, February 14, 2015.  Several prominent speakers are scheduled to address the conference, including LDS Church General Counsel Lance B. Wickman, LDS Church Historian Elder Steven E. Snow, Deseret Book CEO Sheri L. Dew, ASU President Michael M. Crow, Arizona Supreme Court Justice Rebecca White Berch, 9th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Jay S. Bybee, Arizona District Court Judge G. Murray Snow, Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, and Ethics Expert Marianne M. Jennings. Additionally, there are a number of activities planned around the Conference – golf (18- and 9-hole tournaments), hikes on iconic desert trails, and a Friday night dinner gala with live music and dancing (the night before Valentine’s Day).

Registration is open through February 5th.  For more information, link to: http://www.jrcls.org/annual_conf/conf.php.  Register online now at: https://www.regonline.com/Register/Checkin.aspx?EventID=1646230.

 

Membership Drive

On January 23, 2015 the J. Reuben Clark Law Society membership drive began.  Our goal is to increase our membership by ten percent in ten weeks.  Start thinking now about who you know in your area (or in other parts of the world) who would benefit from membership in the Law Society.  The Law Society "affirm[s] the strength brought to the law by a lawyer's personal religious conviction[, and] strive[s] through public service and professional excellence to promote fairness and virtue founded upon the rule of law." We welcome lawyers and law students of all faiths to join.  If you know someone who would benefit from membership in the Law Society, or who would be an asset in supporting the mission of the Law Society, please invite them to join via the online membership application at http://www.jrcls.org/members/new_member_application.php.
