Religious Law in America

Monday, March 24, 2014
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
American University Washington College of Law
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC
Room 603

Scholars Rabbinical, Christian, and Islamic law will shed light on its jurisdiction and recognition by U.S. courts, leading to a fascinating discussion of the interplay between religious freedom and how it may lead to the curtailment of civil liberties protected elsewhere. There will also be discussion on how religious institutions, among them Rabbinical and Sharia courts, can respond while maintaining their role as authorities in religious life. Experts on First Amendment freedoms will provide a perspective on the Constitutional validity and status of religious courts.
