LAW - 801M First Amendment Free Exercise and Religious Conflicts

2 unit(s)
This two-unit course will examine the major Free Exercise and Establishment Clause decisions of the United States Supreme Court (including Burwell v. Hobby Lobby and Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission) and related legislation (especially the Religious Freedom Restoration Act), with a focus on religious exemptions from anti-discrimination laws. Other topics explored include conscience provisions, funding of religion, religious activities on campus, and political activities of religious organizations. The course includes a realistic writing project that satisfies the Upper Division Writing Requirement expected of a junior attorney at an organization advising on a matter implicating free exercise of religion.
