Religion in the Courtroom

Record #:
This bulletin discusses the law applicable to conflicts that pit an individual's desire to exercise his or her personal religious beliefs against the state's need to establish governmental rules and norms that have the effect of prohibiting such practices and forcing the individual to choose between obtaining a governmental benefit or exercising one's religious beliefs. The bulletin begins with a brief review of the legal principles governing these issues and concludes with an analytical framework for use in confronting these issues.
