Savanah Lawrence joined the NCOSE team as a Legal Fellow from Brigham Young University in March 2016. Savanah
has a passion for social justice and is particularly concerned about the issues revolving around the family. Savanah
shares NCOSE’s passion for fighting against pornography because she recognizes how pornography destroys the family
by weakening marital bonds and ostracizing children from their parents.
Savanah’s passion for social justice led her to attend law school at the J. Reuben Clark School of Law at Brigham
Young University. After her first year of law school, Savanah traveled to Uganda as a summer intern to combat sex
crimes against women, promulgated by Uganda’s discriminatory intestacy laws. In her second year, Savanah worked
as a family law research assistant for Professor Lynn Wardle, regarding family law issues. She also volunteered at the
Provo Family Justice Center, where she helped indigent domestic violence victims.
