J. Reuben Clark Law Society (JRCLS)

"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."

In fulfilling its mission, the Law Society is guided by the philosophy, personal example, and values of its namesake, J. Reuben Clark, Jr. Those values include: (1) public service; (2) loyalty to the rule of law as exemplified by the United States Constitution; and (3) appreciation for the religious dimension in society and in a lawyer's personal life.

To accomplish its mission, the Law Society will: (1) encourage its members to regard the practice of law as a public trust from which compensation may be accepted, but as to which service to the courts, clients, and society always will be paramount; (2) promote and protect the rule of just law; (3) provide its members with opportunities for continuing dialogue on legal topics of significance; and (4) where appropriate, assist the Law School to achieve and maintain a position of eminence among the law schools of the world.
