Law and Religion: Cases in Context
Leslie C. Griffin, ed.
Aspen Law & Business, 2010

Designed to be used either as a primary text or with any Law and Religion or First Amendment text, Law and Religion: Cases in Context presents descriptions and discussions of the landmark cases in law and religion and the First Amendment. Cases are selected from the leading religion and First Amendment casebooks, and the authors provide insights into the significance of each while revealing its context and, for many, details about what happened after the case was concluded. Editor Leslie C. Griffin, who holds a Ph.D. in Religious Studies from Yale University as well as a J.D. from Stanford Law School, has brought together an impressive group of contributors, including ICRLS Associate Director Elizabeth A. Clark, who contributed Chapter 10, "Presiding Bishop of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints v. Amos, 483 U.S. 327 (1987): Addressing Tensions Between the Free Exercise and Establishment Clauses."
