Religion, Law and Politics

This seminar will examine the conceptualization and realization of religious liberty and the separation of church and state. We will first look at the philosophical precepts and the historical context of the religion clauses of the first amendment. We will review the state of the law, and then address current controversial issues that impinge on the area. Grades will be based on a paper (all writing requirements can be fulfilled) and class participation. There are no prerequisites.
