We affirm the strength brought to the law by a lawyer's personal religious conviction. We strive through public service and professional excellence to promote fairness and virtue founded upon the rule

Focus: Citizenship, Family, Other, Peace-building

Members of the J. Reuben Clark Law Society are inspired by religious conviction. We believe in the power of religious values and practice to properly inform and motivate our profession. This strong belief is at the very core of who we profess to be.
One of the great values that unites all religions around the world is service to fellow man. People of goodwill everywhere know that service changes the lives of both the giver and the receiver. That it enriches and strengthens every society. That it connects individuals with the meaning and purpose of life.
In the religious tradition of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, this value is nowhere better summarized than by these words of King Benjamin from the Book of Mormon:

And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God. Mosiah 2: 17.

Inspired by this great truth, members of the J. Reuben Clark Law Society strive through public service and professional excellence to promote fairness and virtue founded upon the rule of law.

“. . . [F]or many, . . . access to justice is far from easy. Many impediments exist, caused by language and cultural differences, physical or emotional barriers, lack of money, and inadequate information about available services. The need for pro bono assistance is perhaps never more urgent than in a time of economic contraction. Whether it is a denial of public or private benefits, changes in child support and alimony payments, an inability to pay rent, an outstanding medical bill, an immigration problem, or some other problem, obtaining legal assistance can mean the difference between the successful resolution of a problem and a life-altering loss.” Chief Justice Ronald M. George of the California Supreme Court, California state bar convention, September 5, 2003.

Hola soy Fredderick Zapana Presidente del Capítulo Arequipa - Perú de la Sociedad Legal Internacional J. Reuben Clark Law Society trabaje por varios años como Fiscal Provincial Penal Coordinador para el Ministerio Público y ahora me desempeño como abogado y socio principal de mi propia firma legal.
En nuestro capítulo que está ubicado en la región de Arequipa al sur del Perú trabajamos el servicio legal pro bono hacia la comunidad conformada por personas vulnerables y de escasos recursos económicos además promovemos el empoderamiento de los derechos de la mujer y la libertad religiosa como derecho fundamental.
Al ingresar a la red buscamos sumar, apoyar y crear proyectos relacionados al empoderamiento jurídico en nuestra sociedad.
Creemos firmemente que la unión hace la fuerza y que en un trabajo en equipo se crece más.
Nuestra sociedad en la región de Arequipa necesita de servicio legal de calidad para conocer sus derechos ante diversos casos de violencia familiar y en lo más extremo asesorar en las investigaciones de casos de feminicidio producto de actos de violencia asi como fomentar el empoderamiento de la mujer abogada en ocupaciones de liderazgo sea en puestos públicos como en altas ocupaciones de decisión de gobierno como también en puestos de alta gerencia privada generando una igualdad de oportunidades.
Uno de los aspectos importantes de desarrollo de una nación es el derecho fundamental a la libertad contemplado en la Constitución como en las normas supranacionales y en especifico a la libertad de religión o creencia religiosa donde haya una libertad voluntaria de los ciudadanos de decidir que credo seguir sin intervención de restricción impositiva del estado.
Agradezco la oportunidad que se me da de poder registrarme y de registrar a la organización que lidero estoy a su disposición y a su servicio. Gracias
