Implied-Consent Institutionalism

The title of the post is a moniker Marc DeGirolami kindly gave some of my recent work on the church autonomy doctrine.  While I've previously posted a bit on Prawfs about implied-consent institutionalism (although I didn't have the phrase yet), I couldn't help but mention that those thoughts have just been published in two separate articles: (1) Religion's Footnote Four: Church Autonomy as Arbitration, 97 Minn. L. Rev. 1891 (2013); (2) Litigating Religion, 93 B.U. L. Rev. 493 (2013).

On the plus side, I'm excited to see the articles in print.  On the minus side, there's nothing I can do to change them when I inevitably receive some devastating criticism of my theory.  

Thanks to the many in the Prawfs community that gave me some really great comments while I was working on these two articles!
