Legal topics abound at LDS International Society Conference

On April 6, the day after General Conference, the LDS International Society is holding its 20th Annual Conference.  The topic this year is "The Church and the Global Community," and several of the sessions feature interesting legal issues and presentations by well-known LDS attorneys.
  • Diane Card, the lead international attorney for the Perpetual Education Fund, will speak on some of the legal issues and obstacles associated with administering a program with thousands of donors and recipients in different countries.
  • Professor Cole Durham of the BYU Law School will speak on current initiatives related to religious liberties.
  • Attorney Roger Baker will moderate a panel discussion entitled "Poverty Relief Initiatives: Looking Forward."
The International Society Conference will be held in the Hinckly Alumni and Visitors Center on Brigham Young University campus. The conference is open to the public, and other than the luncheon, there is no charge to attend any of the sessions.  Also, if you cannot attend, the proceedings of each year's conference are made available free of charge to members of the International Society.
