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.
The Notre Dame Law School's Program on Church, State & Society is excited to announce that the Program will award up to two Summer Fellowships, in the amount of $10,000 each, for the summer of 2016 to students working for a religious institution in a legal capacity.
This is an outstanding opportunity for any Notre Dame law student to get exposure in the area of religious law and explore the many legal career options available that combine church, state and society
