September 13 & 14, 2018 | Religious Lawyering at Twenty

Fordham Law School, New York City
Thursday, September 13, 2018 – Friday, September 14, 2018

Building on the seminal work of Tom Shaffer (On Being a Christian a Lawyer, 1981), the late 1990s saw a very creative ferment in reflection on how religious values might inform legal education and the practice of law. In 1997 and 1998, lawyers, judges, law students and law professors from various religious traditions gathered at Fordham Law School for two interfaith conferences: The Relevance of Religion to a Lawyer’s Work (1997) and Rediscovering Religion in the Lives of Lawyers and Those They Represent (1998). At about the twenty year mark, we pause to gather insights from personal and institutional journeys thus far, and look toward the future.
