Emory School of Law

Summary: Emory University School of Law is armed to take on religion in the modern world with the additional support of $1 million from a donor to be used for the programs various projects.

An anonymous $1 million gift was given to Emory University’s Center for the Study of Law and Religion. The gift will fund the project “Restoring Religious Freedom: Education, Outreach, and Good Citizenship” for the next four years. The project will bring scholarships and new voices as well as increase training in religious tradition for the law students.

The project, led by senior lecturer Mark Goldfeder, raises awareness for more internships and externships opportunities and lectures and international conferences to take place for those wanting to practice in the specific law and religion field.

With the added funds, the project can complete other tasks like the production of two volumes on guidelines for law and religion practice. The potential topics focus on religion and either education, charity, or equality.

Last spring, Emory Law won an international law and religion moot court competition. The center will be able to continually build their moot court success by training more students for the competition.

Emory is very involved in having their students get hands-on experience. Last year, Goldfeder helped a group of students with the Emory Law School Supreme Court Advocacy Project work on an amicus brief for the U.S. Supreme Court case of Reed v. Town of Gilbert. The students watched a moot court argument where the attorney representing the church practiced their argument in front of local attorneys and Emory professors.
