James R. Rasband, dean of J. Reuben Clark Law School, presented Christofferson with the award.
“We honor Elder D. Todd Christofferson … for his years of service to the society and his example of integrity,” Rasband said. “He, in fact, emulates our namesake, President J. Reuben Clark.”
Christofferson addressed both lawyers and those interested in law after receiving his award. In his address, he urged them to press for systems of law conducive to the divine plan.
