Established in 1973, the Brigham Young University J. Reuben Clark Law School was named after the late J. Reuben Clark, former U.S. Ambassador, Undersecretary of State, and prominent leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. BYU Law School is affiliated with, and receives support from, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. â??The mission of the J. Reuben Clark Law School is to teach the laws of men in the light of the laws of God. The Law School strives to be worthy in all respects of the name it bears, and to provide an education that is spiritually strengthening, intellectually enlarging, and character building, thus leading to lifelong learning and service.â?? (BYU Law School) Located in Provo, UT between Utah Lake and the Uintah Range of the Rocky Mountains, BYU Law School has a 544-acre campus in a suburban area approximately 45 miles from Salt Lake City. The school was recently ranked among the top 41 law schools in the nation according to U.S. News & World Report.

The law schoolâ??s small class size and low student-to-faculty ratio helps foster the learning process. With respect to the curriculum, all first year courses are prescribed. Second- and third-year students are required to complete a Professional Responsibility course and to satisfy the schoolâ??s writing and professional skills requirements. In addition, there are a number of centers, programs, and externships, both national and international, for students seeking a more hands-on learning experience.
