As Co-Chair of the AALS Section on Law and Religion, I wanted everyone to know that the Section on Law and Religion will have a double session at the upcoming AALS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. The following provides the Section program description and a list of panelists. I hope to see you in Washington.
AALS SECTION ON LAW AND RELIGION
JANUARY 3, 2003, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon
Religion, Identity, and Politics in a Global Perspective
(Program to be Published in the Mississippi College Law Review)
In light of recent events and a continuous trend toward globalization, it is particularly appropriate to examine the role of religion in both public and private life. Panelists will come at this issue from a variety of personal, cultural and global perspectives. They will open conversations about difficult topics such as the apparent clash between women's rights and traditional religions, and notions of universalism in religion and international law.
