Virtual Event


The Supreme Court’s 2019-20 term included major developments in the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious freedom. This webinar will discuss the three religious liberty cases that the Court decided this past summer: Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue, on religious school funding; Little Sisters of the Poor v. Pennsylvania, on exemption from the contraceptive mandate of the Affordable Care Act; and Our Lady of Guadalupe School v. Morrissey-Berru, on ministerial exception.

Constitutional scholars Michael Moreland, University Professor of Law and Religion & Director of the Eleanor H. McCullen Center for Law, Religion and Public Policy at Villanova University, and Stephanie Barclay, Associate Professor of Law at the University of Notre Dame, will discuss these recent cases as well as preview upcoming cases the Court will hear this year.

This lecture is approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for 1 Substantive Distance CLE credit. Please note, those who register will receive an email with the link to the Zoom Webinar prior to the event.
