Elon Law Review publishes issue on relationship between religion and the state

Volume 6, Issue 1 of the Elon Law Review is titled, “Emerging Issues in First Amendment Jurisprudence: Interpreting the Relationship Between Religion and the State in the Modern Age.”

The issue derives from a symposium held at Elon Law in 2012 that was designed to analyze how the legal landscape has changed due to recent legal decisions, legislation and other governmental actions regarding the interplay between religion and the state, as well as to examine the impact and future of pending issues involving the interaction of government and religion in the First Amendment context.
