    This address will explore the development of the law's approach at the intersection between, on the one hand, the manifestation of religious beliefs and, on the other, the protection and promotion of secular values: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/religion-the-rule-of-law-and-discrimination It charts the shift from the historic protection of Christian orthodoxy, through the development of anti-discrimination legislation, to the recent domestic and European legislation and case law which have provided a coherent framework for the balancing of these rights consistent with the values of the Rule of Law. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College Website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/religion-the-rule-of-law-and-discrimination Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.

      Law is everywhere providing answers to almost everything. Ever larger numbers of students want to be part of the legal mechanisms that control us, regulate us and take over from politicians when politicians sense their own incapability. It is almost a new religion. In this lecture -- and in the discussion to follow -- some of the issues dealt with in earlier years by Professor Bogdanor (such as in his lectures, Judges or Legislators: Who Should Rule?, The Judges and the Constitution and The Human Rights Act: Cornerstone of a New Constitution) will be reviewed as will the effect of Europe on our law. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/law-as-a-new-religion-and-other-topics Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.

          Original broadcast date: 12/13/2013 This presentation will provide a summary and analysis of some of the most important legal developments in 2013 that affect religious orders and their sponsored ministries. We will discuss key Supreme Court rulings and lower court decisions affecting marriage, health care, and clergy housing allowances; government rule changes and guidance affecting worker classification, foreign activities of nonprofit organizations, and tax-exempt status of religious organizations; and key developments at the IRS that may affect the ability of religious orders and their sponsored ministries to engage in lobbying and partisan political activities. ABOUT THE PRESENTERS: Michael Durham’s practice focuses on tax-exempt organizations, including religious organizations, both in the United States and abroad. He advises clients on the special rules applicable to religious organizations, integrated auxiliary status, unrelated business tax, and complex structures involving multiple nonprofit and for-profit entities. He has written extensive comments to the IRS and Treasury regarding the proper application of the rules governing churches, and has been a vocal advocate of religious liberty in response to recent legislative proposals to increase regulation of churches and religious organizations. Brendan Wilson advises tax-exempt organizations on a broad spectrum of tax and corporate law issues. Over the past 10 years, Mr. Wilson has represented dozens of Catholic nonprofit organizations and has advised several religious institutes and their sponsored ministries in connection with provincial mergers and restructurings. Mr. Wilson speaks regularly on church law issues and the interconnection between civil and canon law.

                    In March 2011, the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights ruled that Italian law requiring the display of crucifixes in classrooms of state schools did not violate the European Convention on Human Rights. In so doing, it overturned an earlier chamber decision that the law violated the ECHR's guarantee of religious freedom. The Grand Chamber decision was hailed by supporters as affirming Italy's history and tradition as a religious country. Detractors argued that the decision effectively eroded the right of citizens not to be coerced by the state, whether directly or indirectly, to affirm one or any religion. The two decisions reflect contrasting positions on the nature and content of religious liberty, as well as the content and requirements of secularism. These reflections are relevant not only to the specific context of Italy and Europe, but also the United States which continues to struggle with the appropriate boundaries of the constitution's non-establishment injunction and its religious history.
