Joseph Wise is from Sunnyside, Washington. He served a mission to Latvia and speaks Latvian and Spanish. He attended BYU as an undergraduate, studying History, while teaching Latvian at the MTC. After completion of his undergraduate degree Joseph taught Math at an alternative high school and prepared for the LSAT. A second-year law student, he is interning at the Utah County Attorney’s office, criminal division. Joseph was sent by the ICLRS to Lima, Peru during the summer of 2009 to work for the Area Legal Counsel of the LDS Church. It was an extraordinary experience and he learned a lot, both about how the Church functions, legally, and about the reality of practicing law in a civil law country. He spent the rest of the summer working for the Center on the Treatise and served on the Recruitment team of the Executive Committee for the 2009 Symposium. He is pleased to serve as Co-Chair for Recruitment for the 2010 Symposium.
