    07.09.10 Brooklyn Law School Hosts Inaugural Law and Religion Roundtable
    Law and Religion Roundtable

    Brooklyn Law School recently hosted the Inaugural Annual Law and Religion Roundtable, a new forum designed to give scholars of religious freedom a place to share cutting-edge works and engage in discipline-shaping conversations. The Roundtable focused on sessions in which scholars presented works in progress.
