The Mormon Legal Mind

Jesus said, “And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.” This passage raises a number of questions for Latter-day Saints. Does Jesus oppose lawsuits? If so, why does the LDS Church engage in litigation? Would Jesus encourage his church to structure its mission through numerous legal entities, and to operate with limited liability? What impact does LDS legal corporatism have on Mormon culture? This panel discusses research and analysis of all the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint’s Utah incorporating documents.
