Different Faiths, Same Cause: Protecting Religious Liberty in the U.S.

A Zephyr Salon with Professor James A. Sonne (Stanford Law School)

Time & Location

May 17, 2019

560 College Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94306, USA


May employers deny jobs to applicants who request religious accommodations? Should religion factor into immigration policy? Do death row inmates have a right to accompaniment by a chaplain of their faith? Lawmakers, employers and institutions have posed new challenges to religious freedom in recent years. Under the direction of Professor James A. Sonne, the Religious Liberty Clinic at Stanford Law School is building bridges across faiths to help promote a culture of religious flourishing.


In this salon-style conversation, we asked Professor Sonne about his bridge-building work, why U.S. law protects religious liberty, how it determines the limits of religious accommodations in the face of competing interests, and related questions our attendees brought to the discussion.
