Law & Religion eJournal
Editor: Robert F. Cochran
Pepperdine University School of Law

This eJournal distributes working and accepted paper abstracts that explore the intersection of Law and Religion, including articles on:

  1. The Religion Clauses of the United States Constitution and Analogous Law in Other Countries.
  2. Critiques of Law from the Perspective of Religious Traditions.
  3. The Religious Lawyering Movement - what our religious traditions tell us about law practice.
  4. Religious Freedom and International Human Rights.
  5. Religious law Issues (e.g., Canon Law, Islamic Law, and Jewish Law).
  6. United States and International Religion/State Issues (e.g., Church/State Issues).
The purpose of the Herbert and Elinor Nootbaar Institute on Law, Religion, and Ethics is to bring the redemptive capacities of religious faith and moral insight to law, to explore how the practice of law might be a religious calling, and to find ways in which persons trained in law can serve "the least of these" throughout the world. We seek to do so at a theoretical level through seminars, conferences, and scholarship. We also seek to put theory into action, working with governments and human rights organizations around the globe to bring peace, justice, and the rule of law.
