The focus of this course is to study, evaluate, and discuss religion generally and the religious beliefs (religion is herein defined broadly to accommodate the individual religious and/or spiritual background of the students in order to enhance the breadth of discussion) of lawyers/judges specifically and the role it does - and/or ought - play in the profession of practicing law (and in related areas of politics, government, etc.) including professional ethics.
The final grade will be based primarily upon a paper of your choice subject only to the theme of the course and approval of the Professor. Oral presentation of the paper topic and class participation will also be the sources of your grade.
