The last issue alone has articles by Utah Judge Sheila McCleve (Guardians of the Law), Professor Brett Scharffs (Revisiting Humility), Idaho Judge Gregory Moeller (Defending Innocence), California Supreme Court Justice Goodwin Liu (Martin Luther King and the Good Samaritan), Senior Advisor of the Joseph Smith Papers project, Jeffrey Walker (Oliver Cowdery), and Senior Counsel for the Becket Fund, Hannah Clayson Smith (In Defense of Religious Freedom).
Back issues of the Clark Memorandum also provide a number of articles about the history of the law school, including Unfolding in Time, Stories that Defined Our Law School, The House that Rex Built, Glimpses of the Law School’s Founding, Anonymous No More, The Charter Class Looks Back, and Becoming J. Reuben Clark’s Law School.
