A lively conversation regarding the Supreme Court's current and future jurisprudence related to Religious Liberty and the Law

About this Event

Lunch and panel discussion at the California Club in Los Angeles, California. Featuring:

  • Dr. John Eastman, Director of Claremont Institute's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, and
  • Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean of Berkeley Law School,
  • with moderator Judge Kenneth K. Lee of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

One hour of California MCLE credit will be offered.

The U.S. Supreme Court has just agreed to decide whether the federal government may force a group of Roman Catholic nuns, the Little Sisters of the Poor, to provide their employees with health care that includes contraceptive coverage, in violation of their religious beliefs. In two other blockbuster cases this term, the Supreme Court will decide whether the First Amendment’s religion clauses prevent civil courts from deciding employment-discrimination claims against religious employers by employees who carry out important religious functions. Finally, in a fourth case this term, the Court will decide whether it violates the Constitution’s religion clauses or the equal protection clause to invalidate a generally available and religiously neutral student-aid program simply because the program affords students the choice of attending religious schools.

This distinguished panel of invited scholars will discuss how the Court—including its two newest justices—will likely decide these cases and other important religious liberty issues as they arise.
