Law & Religion Call for Papers

On February 23-25, Pepperdine will host the third Religious Legal Theory conference.  It will deal with: “The Competing Claims of Law & Religion: Who Should Influence Whom?”  Some speakers will address the topic as a matter of constitutional law, some as a matter of “good citizenship,” some as a matter of religious faith.  The speakers who have already agreed to speak at the conference include those listed down below this post.  Details are here.

Those interested in speaking at the conference or organizing a panel are welcome to submit proposals on any law and religion topic, by September 15, 2011 to:
