J. Reuben Clark Law Society

2014-2015 JRCLS Membership Drive

The J. Reuben Clark Law Society urges you—as an individual or a leader in the Law Society—to help in our membership drive. We number more than 12,000 in membership, but there is much opportunity to grow dramatically. Our Law Society Chair, Jeremiah Morgan, invited members and leaders at the Fall Leadership Conference to diligently pursue a 10% increase in chapter membership in 10 weeks beginning 5 January 2015. Realistically, if individual JRCLS members each reached out to 2 or 3 attorneys, the goal could easily be accomplished. 

Remember that the Law Society is not limited to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Anyone can join who shares the values of the mission statement of the Law Society. The Law Society even has a member of the Catholic faith serving as Chapter Chair in Brazil: Dr. Odacyr Prigol.

Some of the primary benefits to membership include
  •  Individual and collective service opportunities in our communities. The Law Society has a vibrant service committee and a culture of service throughout the world.
  • Associations with wonderful and successful attorneys who share the values of religious liberty and conviction.
  • Student chapters in law schools throughout the world, allowing students with similar beliefs to gather together to strengthen one another. 
  •  Sections of the Law Society that cover almost every aspect of the law and enable you to network and reach out to attorneys with practices that are similar to yours.
  • Annual events, including: (1) an Annual Fireside Broadcast in January from the Conference Center in Salt Lake City; (2) an International Conference each year in February with hundreds of attorneys and students attending; and (3) an Annual Leadership Conference in October at Brigham Young University and Aspen Grove.
  • Social media resources such as the J. Reuben Clark Law Society Facebook Page (“J. Reuben Clark Law Society” at https://www.facebook.com/groups/jrcls/), the YouTube Channel (JReubenClarkLaw at https://www.youtube.com/user/JReubenClarkLaw) and a LinkedIn account (J. Reuben Clark Law Society (JRCLS)).
In addition, there are countless opportunities for service, outreach, CLE classes, and for supporting religious liberty in our more than 200 chapters worldwide. Please consider joining personally, as well as in your chapters, in this effort to build the Law Society by 10% in 10 weeks.
