Workshop on Religious Law in Civil Courts
Thursday, May 29, 2014
8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
This workshop focuses on the role of religious law and tribunals in the U.S. in both family law and criminal law settings. We will explore the complexity of women’s legal lives and the ways in which policy might help them negotiate this pluralist legal horizon to their best advantage.
This event is co-sponsored by the International Center for Ethics, Justice and Public Life. The Project on Gender, Culture, Religion and the Law is funded by a generous gift from the Sylvia Neil and Dan Fischel Philanthropic Fund.
This workshop is part of a collaboration between Brandeis University and the School of Oriental and African Studies, Gender, Religion and Equality in Public Life: Perspectives from the United States and the United Kingdom, supported by a grant from the British Council, Bridging Voices Program.
