Stanford Law School Launches First-Ever Religious Liberty Clinic

Written by Admin on January 25, 2013 Category: RLUIPA

As the number of religious liberty cases being filed in the U.S. continues to increase, Stanford Law School recently announced that it will be the first law school in the country to offer its students a legal clinic exclusively devoted to religious freedom cases. Thanks in part to a $1.6 million donation from the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, students in the Religious Liberty Clinic will handle a variety of cases, including those under the First Amendment, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (“RFRA”), the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (“RLUIPA”), and Title VII.

Students will work full-time at the Clinic for a twelve-week period. This semester, the students will handle two religious land uses cases, one for a mosque and one for a church; a prisoner free exercise case; and an employment discrimination case brought by Seventh-day Adventists who were fired for refusing to work on Saturday, their Sabbath day.
