Conference: Law and Religion: Legal Regulation of Religious Groups, Organisations and Communities

Friday, 15 July 2011 - 9:00am - Saturday, 16 July 2011 - 4:00pm

The Centre for Comparative Constitutional Studies at Melbourne Law School and the International Centre for Law and Religion Studies at Brigham Young Law School are pleased to invite you to an international conference on Law and Religion: Legal Regulation of Religious Groups, Organisations and Communities.                        


Religious freedom is usually set out in international treaties and domestic constitutions as an individual right. Yet it is widely acknowledged that it has significant collective dimensions. This international conference, featuring eminent Australian and international speakers, will explore the role of law in regulating religious communities and how the law should and does respond to conflicts between individual and group rights. It will cover both international and comparative domestic law and include experts in the field from across the world.


Speakers will attend from North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia, and will include some of the leading names in law and religion.
