Next Monday, March 24–the day before oral arguments in the Hobby Lobby andConestoga Wood Products cases–the Religious Freedom Project at Georgetown University’s Berkley Center will host an event, “Everybody’s Business: The Legal, Economic, and Political Implications of Religious Freedom,” at the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C. from noon to 5:30 p.m. (RSVP, as there is a buffet lunch at noon.) The keynote of the event will be a conversation between Baylor University’s President Kenneth Starr and Harvard Law School’s Professor Alan Dershowitz, “Beyond Hobby Lobby: What Is at Stake with the HHS Mandate?” Following that conversation, the balance of the afternoon will feature two panels, one on the Hobby Lobby case and its implications and another on the question, “Is Religious Freedom Good for Business and for the Poor?” Each panel features outstanding legal and scholarly experts on religious freedom, with different views represented. It should be a very illuminating afternoon.
