NOOTBAAR AND GLAZER INSTITUTES PRESENT “THE COMPETING CLAIMS OF LAW AND RELIGION” The Pepperdine School of Law Herbert and Elinor Nootbaar Institute on Law, Religion, and Ethics, and the University's Diane and Guilford Glazer Institute for Jewish Studies, have teamed up to host the third annual Religious Legal Theory conference, The Competing Claims of Law and Religion: Who Should Influence Whom?. The event will be held on the Malibu campus February 23 through 25. The three-day conference will welcome more than 80 speakers from throughout the world, including South America, Asia, Europe, and Canada. The conference will address a host of sub-questions all at the forefront of contemporary debates over the respective roles of law and religion. Topics will include constitutional law, good citizenship, and matters of religious faith. Among the notable speakers are Abdullahi Ahmed An-na 'im, of Emory School of Law; Andrew Koppelman, Northwestern University School of Law; Ayelet Shachar, University of Toronto; Suzanne Last Stone, Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University; Steven D. Smith, University of San Diego School of Law; Dallas Willard, USC Department of Philosophy; and Richard Garnett, University of Notre Dame Law School. The Herbert and Elinor Nootbaar Institute on Law, Religion and Ethics was created to explore the nexus between these three disciplines, with particular emphasis on the intersection of faith and law. The purpose of the institute is to bring the redemptive capacity of religious faith and moral insight to law to find ways in which persons trained in law can serve "the least of these" throughout the world, and to explore how the practice of law might be a religious calling. The Diane and Guilford Glazer Institute for Jewish Studies was established based on the understanding that as a Christian University, Pepperdine's students are especially open to discussions of faith and identity, but are often unacquainted with Christianity's ongoing relationship with Judaism. The Institute is designed to increase a majority-Christian academic community's exposure to, discussion of, and awareness of Judaism, Jewish Studies, and Israel.
