Richard W. Garnett, associate dean for faculty research, professor of law, and concurrent professor of political science at the University of Notre Dame, addressed the state of religious freedom in the United States during the Stranahan Lecture.

In a lecture titled, “Challenges to Religious Freedom in America Today,” Garnett considered the rights of religious believers and institutions versus governmental action, and their respective roles in American public life today.

Professor Garnett teaches and writes about the freedoms of speech, association, and religion. He is a leading authority on the role of religious believers and institutions in politics and society. He is the author of dozens of law review articles and book chapters, and his book, Two There Are: Understanding the Separation of Church and State, will be published by Cambridge University Press.

The presentation was held at the University of Toledo Law Center.
