The definition of religion in our society, the political and constitutional implications arising from the intersection of religion and land use, and a multidimensional legal perspective in the wake of a fury of litigation concerning RLUIPA were topics addressed at "God and the Land: Conflicts Over Land Use and Religious Freedom." The three-day symposium, presented by the Albany Government Law Review, was held from Oct. 1-3, at Albany Law School.

More than a dozen experts in the field of land use law and religion, including:

  • Hon. Randall T. Shepard , Chief Justice, Indiana Supreme Court
  • Hon. Michael McConnell, S.J. Quinney School of Law and 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
  • Marci A. Hamilton, Cardozo School of Law

The scholarship presented at this event will be published in the Albany Government Law Review's spring 2009 issue.

The symposium was cosponsored by the Government Law Center of Albany Law School.
