Religious Law in Civil Courts: The Implications of the "Anti-Sharia" Law Movement in the United States
Aimed at exploring the rich and complex relationship between law and the three Abrahamic Faiths (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam), Loyola University Chicago School of Law is sponsoring a three-part series called Law and Religion.
The topic being addressed in this particular lecture is: "How and why do civil courts consider religios law, and what are the implications of proposed legsilative restrictions on this practice? May states consider the procedural and substantive fairness of religious laws when deciding whether and how they apply in civil court matters."
