The Restoring Religious Freedom Project recently supported the development of important new scholarship on religious liberty from the nation’s leading expert on the topic, Douglas Laycock. Laycock is Robert E. Scott Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of Virginia, as well as a Supreme Court advocate and frequent commentator on religious liberty in the United States. The Restoring Religious Freedom Project supported the completion of Douglas Laycock’s five-volume, comprehensive study of religious liberty in the United States, which was published as part of the Emory University Studies in Law and Religion Series. The Project also supported a lecture by Laycock at Emory University School of Law, where Laycock argued that the Supreme Court case Masterpiece Cakeshop Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission may have broader implications for religious liberty than most commentators have acknowledged. With this new work from a leading expert in the field, the Restoring Religious Freedom Project continues to advance education and understanding on the important topic of religious liberty.
