18th Annual Rex Lee and Shawn Bentley Award Luncheon 

The J. Reuben Clark Law Society (JRCLS) Mid-Atlantic Chapter is pleased to announce our Annual Rex Lee and Shawn Bentley Award Luncheon to be held on June 6, 2018 at 12:30 pm at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC.  The luncheon will include the presentation of the Rex Lee Advocacy Award to a distinguished recipient and will feature a keynote speaker.

The Rex Lee Advocacy Award is presented annually to one the nation's outstanding advocates whose life and legal practice reflect the values exemplified by the award's namesake, Rex Lee, a former U.S. Solicitor General, university president, and founding dean of the BYU law school.  The National Law Journal has called the Award a coveted prize with an "honor roll ... that reads like a who's who among the nation's top appellate lawyers."

The JRCLS Mid-Atlantic Chapter will also present the Shawn Bentley Public Service Awards to two deserving law students.  These awards are stipends given to law students who have demonstrated a willingness to explore a public service opportunity in the legal profession in the Washington, DC area during their law school career and who are affiliated with student chapters of the Law Society.  These public service awards and their travel to the event are funded by the generosity of lunch sponsors.
