The International Center for Law and Religion Studies is pleased to announce the members of the Student Executive Committee for the Twentieth Annual International Law and Religion Symposium. The success of the Symposium each year is due in large part to the planning and performance of these outstanding students from the J. Reuben Clark Law School, under the direction of Associate Director Elizabeth Clark, Center Coordinator Deborah Wright, and Center Senior Editor Donlu Thayer.
The committee members are divided into five teams: Chase Thomas, Chair, with the help of Aline Longstaff, coordinate and oversee the Master Schedule of all Symposium events, including delegate schedules. Co-chairs of the Recruitment Team, Rachel Bennion, and Shantel Talbot, with the assistance of Monica Gardner, Eva Brady, and Jedediah Knight, recruit, organize, and supervise dozens of student volunteers from the law school and across BYU campus, as well as coordinating campus-wide events for Symposium delegates. Joseph Ricks will chair the Transportation Team, with team members Roman Harper and Daniel Ortner, assisting in scheduling and coordinating the work of the volunteer drivers, and who will themselves spend many hours on the road, assuring that all delegates are conducted safely to and from the airport and among the various Symposium activities in Provo and Salt Lake City. John Anderson and Lynn Nouri as co-chairs, with with the assistance of Joshua Bishop, Travis Hyer, and Scott Elder, will supervise the concierge desk during the Symposium and oversee the many details involved in hosting and meeting the needs of delegates and other Symposium attendees, including acting as liaison with the Hosting Committee. James Heilpern and Bryant Hinckley will co-chair the Documents Team, with the help of Monique Mullenaux and Zachary Smith in managing Symposium documents, including gathering delegate presentations and distributing them to translators, compiling the moderator packets, preparing documents for publication, and many other details of the Symposium “paperwork” before, during, and after the event.
