The 2012 Conference of Religiously Affiliated Law Schools!
May 2-4, Touro Law School will be hosting the 2012 RALS conference, which is open to all (including those who teach at non-religious institutions). You can get all the details here. This wil be the first time such a conference has been held at a Jewish-affilliated school.
Religiously-affiliated law schools have been at the forefront of many innovations over the past two decades, such as the inclusion of social justice within the mission of a school. At past conferences, a vigorous discussion has grown out of the diversity of views within this group, which includes Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish institutions.
The conference is timed so that participants can conveniently combine their time at Touro with a weekend in New York City.
