CSLR Research Projects

The Center for the Study of Law and Religion sponsors several research projects on discrete themes that have religion at their core but command the analysis of several other disciplines, not the least law and legal theory.  Most projects yield public forums and publications.  Larger projects are driven by a team of Emory senior fellows and scholars from other institutions; some consist of a series of multiyear initiatives, often with the generous support of both Emory University and external benefactors.

In Their Own Words

"The emergence of the Law and Religion Program has coincided with a resurgence in this country of the debates about the role of religion and the debate in the public square. The program has not taken a single ideological stance, but it has made possible the debate of faith in the public square, the relationship of moral concepts to legal obligations, the role of the church and the state and the state in the church. The program has made possible those debates with incredible historical accuracy and with an understanding of the nuances of the differences among the faith traditions."
