Professor Bradley Jacob of Regent University and Chicago-Kent’s Professor Steven Heyman will discuss one of America’s first liberties, the free exercise of religion.  Their talk will include a brief history of the Free Exercise Clause, from the “golden age” before 1990, to the disaster of Employment Division v. Smith, to the amazingly non-partisan decade of lobbying that followed. The event will end with a status report on religious liberty today.

Sponsored by the Federalist Society, the Christian Legal Society, and the Decalogue Society.
