Mormon Lawyers’ Blog Has Migrated to WordPress!

Since 2008 the Mormon Lawyers’ Blog was hosted on Blogger. However, we are now using Word press for our blog and website platform. We hope this switch will make the blog look and function better. Additionally, we hope to eventually migrate the LDS Legal Link┬ádirectory of LDS attorney into this website. The directory of LDS attorneys is currently in its own free-standing website.

If you aren’t already following us on Facebook and Twitter feel free to join the conversation!

University of South Carolina Law School Adds JRCLS Chapter

It appears that the University of South Carolina’s Law School is bursting at the seams with six LDS law students! Because of this huge influx of LDS law students the school has established a JRCLS Student Chapter.

I’m very excited for the students and hope that this is the beginning of another great student chapter.

BTW, I can’t find the webpage with a list of all JRCLS Student Chapters, anybody know where it is?

Update: ASU Law School Moving to Downtown Phoenix

Based off of web traffic our previous post on Arizona State University moving their law school to downtown Phoenix, Arizona was one of the most popular posts we’ve ever had. It seems like there’s a lot of interest in the project. If all goes according to plan construction will begin in May 2014 and should be completed by mid 2016.

Below are pictures I took of what the future law school’s location currently looks like. I tried to mark the parking lot in red.

Below are some other pictures that I took of the Civic Space Park. The park sits just one block away from the future law school.
