Teaching Law & Religion | a project of Politics of Religion at Home and Abroad, funded by the Luce Foundation

For researchers, instructors, and policymakers at the intersection of religion and law, the Teaching Law & Religion Case Study Archive is a helpful collection of open-access resources related to the topic. This resource list is compiled by Winnifred Fallers Sullivan, a religious studies professor at Indiana University and Elizabeth Shakman Hurd, a political science professor at Northwestern University. The archive also features the work of a number of scholars. As of this write-up, the case studies portion of the archive features nine different case studies from around the globe, each containing a synopsis and a number of related readings that provide additional context and analysis. For instance, one case study discusses South Africa’s Muslim Marriage Bill, which was introduced in 2010 and, if passed, would provide legal recognition for Muslim marriages. Another case study involves the 2009 court case R(E) v. The Governing Body of JFS, in which the UK Supreme Court assessed the legality of the admissions policy at a Jewish school. In addition to the case studies collection, this resource contains a collection of college-level syllabi and an extensive bibliography for those interested in further research. [MMB]
