The JRCLS Annual Conference is coming up. It is going to be held on February 13-15, 2014 in Kansas City, Missouri at the UMKC School of Law. The Conference theme is "Obedience to the Law is Liberty".
Great speakers are lined up including J. W. Nixon, governor of Missouri, James Clayton, Solicitor General of Missouri, judges from Kansas and Missouri, Elder Lance Wickman, general counsel for the Church and many, many others.
Since the first student conference in 2004, the J. Reuben Clark Law Society Annual Conference has expanded to include attorneys, and Society members from outside the United States who gather to discuss contemporary legal issues, expand professional networks, discuss the mission of the Law Society, hold Section meetings, and provide mentoring.
Please think about attending. One of the benefits to holding the Conference in the Kansas City area is that there is so much LDS Church history associated with that location. Many of the Conference classes and side trips will include this historical perspective.

We will be holding a special Women in Law Breakfast on Friday morning. Hope to see you there!
