NOTICE: Laïcité in Comparative Perspective

The Center for Law and Religion at St John's School of Law (US) has recently published a collection of papers drawn from its inaugural conference, Laïcité in Comparative Perspective:

At this conference, held in June 2010 at the St. John's Paris campus, American and European scholars presented papers and participated in robust roundtable discussions that compared the French model of church-state relations, laïcité, with models that exist in other countries, including the United States, Italy and Spain. Professor Douglas Laycock of the University of Virginia gave the Conference Introduction. The proceedings are now available at 49 Journal of Catholic Legal Studies 1 (2010).

The Center for Law and Religion at St. John's School of Law provides a forum for an open dialogue on, and the in-depth study of, law and religion from domestic, international and comparative perspectives. We also offer our students a unique opportunity to examine the interplay between law and religion in our local and global communities.
