2014 Conference on Christian Legal Thought--Public Engagement With Law and Religion: A Conference in Honor of Jean Bethke Elshtain

I'm pleased to announce the 2014 Conference on Christian Legal Thought, sponsored by the Lumen Christi Institute at the University of Chicago and the Law Professors Christian Fellowship. The conference occurs in conjunction with the annual AALS meeting, which is being held in Manhattan this year. This year's conference explores the life and thought of Professor Jean Bethke Elshtain and the theme of public engagement with law and religion. The subject should be of broad interest in light of the great ferment in the field these days.
