Nootbaar Institute’s Religious Critiques of Law – Orange, CA


March 9-10, 2017, Pepperdine Law School and the Nootbaar Institute host Religious Critiques of Law.

At this conference, some speakers will support Shaffer’s notion that religious critiques of law are of important value to our legal discourse. Others will challenge that notion. It is our hope that the conference will draw speakers from a wide variety of religious traditions who will address the law from their tradition. We welcome speakers who might address the history of religious influence on law. Any subject area of law is fair game, but we want to encourage speakers to address subjects that do not ordinarily come in for religious critique—property, contracts, torts, etc. We hope some speakers will address the legal profession and legal education from religious perspectives. We hope that you can join us.
