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 Program on Church, State & Society has awarded four fellowships to students who will work in the area of religious institutions practice this summer.
