The Religion Clauses, RFRA & RLUIPA: My New Video

At Chicago-Kent’s 38th Annual Conference on Section 1983, which took place as a streaming webinar on April 20-21, 2022, I presented an update on the Establishment Clause, the Free Exercise Clause, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) and the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA). Below are an overview and the link to that 1 1/4 hour video presentation which is intended for attorneys but is also accessible to laypersons.

I covered the following:

I. The Purposes of the Religion Clauses

II. Approaches to the Religion Clauses: Strict Separation and Accommodation

III. The Three Establishment Clause Tests

IV. Three Historically Controversial Areas of Establishment Clause Jurisprudence

V. The Free Exercise Clause

VI. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act

VII. The Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act

VIII. Concluding Observations

Here is the video:
