From this Wednesday, October 1st, to Friday, October 3rd, the Albany Government Law Review, along with the Government Law Center of Albany Law School, will present God and the Land: Conflicts Over Land Use and Religious Freedom, a symposium on what defines religion in American law, the political and constitutional implications where land use regulation and religious freedom intersect, and the legal implications of Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000. Speakers will include Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard of the Indiana Supreme Court and Hon. Michael McConnell of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, along with America’s leading thinkers in this dynamic area of law. Take a look at the symposium’s agenda here.
Over the next few days we will be providing panel-by-panel, speaker-to-speaker feedback live from the symposium, including audio of our speakers’ presentations, and an opportunity for our readers to comment on and participate in the dialogue the symposium will undoubtedly generate.
We hope you find occasion over the next two days to follow the goings on at the symposium and to offer your thoughts.
