The Notre Dame Law School Program on Church, State & Society has awarded three summer fellowships to first-year law students Lydia Woods, Sarah Karchunas, and Kyle Smith. Each will receive a $10,000 fellowship award to work for a religious institution in a legal capacity this summer.
Director of Church, State & Society Program
Welcome to the Program on Church, State & Society
This Program focuses on the intersection of Church, State & Society and how the law structures and governs that intersection. Through a variety of programs we encourage scholarship and meaningful conversation on the role of religious institutions, communities and authorities in the social order and at the same time highlights the important role they play in the content and protection of religious freedom.
A team of four Notre Dame Law School students won an international religious freedom moot court competition last week in Bologna, Italy
