As noted in the RLUIPA defense blog, the State & Local Government Section of the American Bar Association is hosting a webinar “Litigating Religious Land Use Cases.” This webinar complements the book I wrote on the same topic that can be found here:

The program is described as follows:

  • This program will explore and analyze legal principles and issues related to litigating religious land use cases. It will cover the kinds of religious land use claims that religious entities can bring under the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (“RLUIPA”), state Religious Freedom Restoration Acts and the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment. When religious expression is hindered by local zoning laws, RLUIPA has proven to be a valuable tool that not only benefits both the government and religious entities by promoting the viability of social growth in the community, but also increases religious tolerance and inclusion. The panelists will provide practical tips for attorneys on both sides of the fence through municipal review and litigation in state or federal court.

I will be participating in the program, along with Evan Seeman and John F. X. Peloso, Jr. of Robinson & Cole.

The webinar is scheduled for November 6, 2014 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET. For more information about theprogram, including registration, click here.
