Jedediah Knight

Jedediah “Jedi” Knight is a third-year law student at J. Reuben Clark Law School. Jedi first became interested in Law and Religion issues as an undergraduate studying Physics, when he became acutely aware of the competing ideologies of secularity and religiosity. Jedi chose to attend BYU Law, in part, so that he could begin to help influence domestic and international religious freedom issues. As a first-year law student he volunteered extensively for the ICLRS Symposium, and in 2014 he served as  member of the Recruitment Team of the Symposium Executive Committee. As a member of the ICLRS Student Management Boards for 2014-2015 and again in 2015-2016, Jedi is working to help complete the second edition of the West treatise Religious Organizations and the Law. Jedi has also worked as a legal intern for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, where he has dealt with matters relating to trademark registration, intellectual property infringement, and licensing agreements.
