Summer Research Fellows for 2018

The International Center for Law and Religion Studies is pleased to announce the 2018 Summer Research Fellows. Each year the Center invites outstanding students to spend the summer between their first and second years at J. Reuben Clark Law School in externships with offices of the Area Legal Counsels of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in many parts of the world and at the General Counsel’s office in Salt Lake City, Utah. In addition to this work, the Fellows participate in Center research, writing, and publishing projects. This year’s thirteen students will travel to Belgium, Dominican Republic, Germany, Ghana, Hong Kong, New Zealand, and South Africa.
