Law and Religion
The goal of Loyola University Chicago School of Law’s new program in Law and Religion is to explore the rich and complex relationship between law and the three Abrahamic Faiths: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. These religions underpin and inform many of the cultural values and practices that are embodied in law and public policy in nations around the world. In turn, legal norms often facilitate, limit and shape religious practices. The Program in Law and Religion will facilitate an interdisciplinary and interfaith dialogue on the mutually informing influence of theology, religious traditions, and the law, and make the fruits of this dialogue widely available through education and outreach efforts.
