This seminar is the required and restricted classroom component for students enrolled in the Religious Freedom Clinic. It introduces students to the history, theory, and law of religious freedom – and its limits – with an emphasis on settings presented by the Clinic’s fieldwork that term. The seminar also develops the skills and norms central to the practice and profession of religious-freedom advocacy, with an emphasis on cross-cultural competency, reflective lawyering, and an innovative defense of the marginalized, maligned, and misunderstood.
