Jared Hatch is from Herndon, Virginia. He served as a full-time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Lubbock, Texas. He enjoys running, playing soccer, and mastering new songs on the piano and guitar. Jared graduated from Brigham Young University in 2011 with a BA in American studies and a minor in business management. The summer before he entered law school Jared was part of the student team at the International Center for Law and Religion Studies that assisted in preparing an amicus brief for the important U.S. Supreme Court case Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. EEOC. He is grateful for the opportunity to return to the study of law and religion with ICLRS for another summer and is both honored and excited to work for the Church’s area legal counsel in Accra.
