Annual Conference Success and Thank You

Thanks to all who planned and attended another fantastic annual conference for the Society.  Some great photos from the conference at Stanford can be found here http://www.law2.byu.edu/jrcls/annual_conference/pictures/pics2012/.  The Stanford setting was spectacular—see in particular the photos of the Memorial Chapel in which we held our opening event.  The opening fireside can be viewed online at: http://www.law2.byu.edu/news/item.php?num=3723.  A special thanks to organist James Welch, soprano singer Barbara Welch Cramer, and speaker, Professor John W. (Jack) Welch, who participated in the fireside.

Inspirational Thought

I have come to believe that the apparent separation of our public and private lives is really not possible.  I am not suggesting that we mow the lawn in coat and tie.  What I am suggesting--and believe with increasing intensity--is that there must be integrity and consistency in what we are and what we do.  In other words, while we may perform with excellence in certain aspects of our professional responsibilities and yet have other major parts of our lives in disarray, complete or optimal professionalism requires consistency between our public and private behaviors.

—Elder Cecil O. Samuelson, "A Personal Philosophy of Professionalism"
Life in the Law: Service and Intergrity, at 131
