Man's laws and legal systems should be tied to and reflect the same purposes of God's laws, said Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during the ninth annual J. Reuben Clark Law Society Fireside Friday night.

"We honor Elder D. Todd Christofferson for his years of service to society and his example of integrity and commitment to the highest ideals of the legal profession," said James R. Rasband, a professor of law at BYU.

Elder Christofferson was awarded the J. Reuben Clark Society Distinguished Service Award for his contributions in the field of law.
