The purpose of the J. Reuben Clark Law Society is to help students recognize the strength that can be brought to the study of law through students’ personal religious convictions. Values such as (1) public service, (2) loyalty to the rule of law, and (3) appreciation for the religious dimension within the law student’s personal life guide the organization in promoting fairness and virtue founded upon the rule of law.
The organization’s bylaws state, in part, that to “accomplish its mission, the Student Chapter will (1) encourage its members to regard law studies as preparation to serve the courts, clients, and society (which service will always be paramount) as well as to practice law which may provide compensation; (2) promote and protect the rule of law; and (3) provide members with opportunities for continuing dialogue on legal topics of significance . . .”
