    Howard W. Hunter

    Law Library

    Howard W. Hunter (1907-1995) was the 14th President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and is the only attorney ever to have served in that role.

    As an attorney, President Hunter "… was known for his integrity, precise thinking, clear communications, and sense of fairness. He was also known as a “people lawyer”.… Howard was much more concerned about seeing that people got the help they needed than that he got compensated for it.”

    From The Life and Ministry of Howard W. Hunter

    "President Hunter has stood as a highly visible example to all of the lawyers and law students who know him or know of him — and they number in the tens of thousands. He epitomizes the practice of law in the classic style: honor, ethical conduct, courtesy, gentility, the art of making the adversarial system work while sticking to the rules, and — though I list it last, I think of it as a component of first importance — integrity."

    ~ John S. Welch,
    quoted in the March, 1991 issue of the Ensign
