RELI 079 - (HP) Religion, Law, and Society

Semester Hours: 3
Religion and Law intersect in multiple ways, and this often translates into real-world consequences. Legal trends suggest that attorneys and other professionals who can think critically about religion are well-positioned to handle a rapidly changing landscape regarding a swirl of issues, such as “religious freedom” Supreme Court decisions; litigation involving countries with different religions and laws regarding religion; theory of law discussions that contextualize the U.S. justice system in national and global history and culture; and cases that illumine both injustices and interventions regarding equality of race, class, gender, sexuality, religion, and citizenship status under the law. This class introduces students to layers of intersection between religion and the law in preparation for professions. This critical and practical knowledge is essential for legal literacy, juridical innovation, and social progress. It also provides a critical exploration of these topics that will serve those seeking a more informed understanding of this vital social issue.
