The Current Situation in Church and State

DATE: Friday, November 1, 2013
TIME: 12:00 - 1:00pm
College of Law, Auditorium
Approved for 1 CLE credit hour
We face a moment of unusual confusion in our efforts to patrol the wall of separation between church and state. We are increasingly forgetting that the wall, in its origins, was intended to protect the church from the state, not the other way around. Carter's talk will review recent developments, and also explain how a greater attention to both history and game theory will help us reach a richer understanding of how and why to protect the wall of separation.
