> RE: Existing Law & Religion Programs in Law Schools
> I have recently spoken with David Orgon Coolidge, of the Ethics & Public
> Policy Center in Washington, D.C. Dave is doing a survey of existing law
> and religion programs, and is trying to identify the full range of programs
> based in law schools.
> He is doing this as a consultant for the Religion Program of Pew Charitable
> He has asked me, as head of the AALS Law & Religion Section, to do an
> informal poll. He's spoken to some of you already, but doesn't want to
> leave anybody out.
> The question is: which law schools have any or all of the following:
> (1) organized Law & Religion programs - if so, do they
focus on church-state
> issues (practically or theoretically) or do they define themselves more
> (2) joint degrees (with divinity or religion programs),
> (3) special lectureships, and/or
> (4) special publications projects (past, present or coming soon).
> BTW, Dave recently found an article by Derek H. Davis and Robert H. Haener,
> III, "An Examination of Church-State Curriculum in American Higher
> Education," 38 J of Ch and State 155 (1996), and recommends it to any who
> may not have seen it.
> Dave would appreciate a response this week, if possible. Feel free to
> email either to me, or to Dave directly at mlproj at eppc.org. Thank you.
