The Brigham Young University J. Reuben Clark Law School is a small school affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Members of that church pay about half the tuition non-members pay. The law school curriculum incorporates religious, ethical, and moral values into foundations and concepts of the law. Students can pursue joint degree programs including a J.D./M.B.A. or J.D./Master of Accounting through the Marriott School of Management and a J.D./Master of Education through the David O. McKay School of Education.

The BYU Law School has a variety of unique programs, including the Society of Biblical Literature-Biblical Law, the Marriage and Family Law Research Project, and the International Center for Law and Religion Studies at BYU. There are more than 20 student organizations to check out, including clubs like Iron Justice Golf and Spirit in the Law, as well as four legal journals: the BYU Law Review, the BYU Education and Law Journal, the BYU Journal of Public Law, and the BYU International Law and Management Review. For fun outside of class, BYU law students engage in events including annual talent shows, ugly sweater competitions, and basketball tournaments against law students at the University of Utah.

Women make up about 34 percent of the total student body, and about half of BYU’s law graduates stay in Utah to practice. Notable alumni of the Brigham Young University Law School include Monte Stewart, president of the nonprofit Marriage Law Foundation, and Steve Young, former NFL quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers.
