Center for Law and Religion

Established in 2010, the Center for Law and Religion at St. John’s School of Law provides a forum for the study of law and religion from domestic, international and comparative perspectives. The Center aims to:

  • Examine the role of law in the relationship between religion and the state
  • Explore the concept of law in different religious traditions
  • Promote St. John’s Vincentian mission by encouraging an open dialogue on law and religion in the local, national and international communities

In addition to hosting academic programs here and abroad, the Center coordinates the Law School’s law and religion curriculum and hosts the Law and Religion Forum, a frequently updated online resource on recent scholarship, cases and law and religion news from across the globe.
