Marc and I are in Rome this week, where CLR is co-hosting, along with the Libera Universita Maria SS. Assunta (LUMSA), an international conference, “State-Sponsored Religious Displays in the US and Europe.” The conference, which takes place tomorrow at LUMSA’s main campus in the Borgo, addresses the treatment of religious displays in different legal systems, focusing on recent cases like Salazar v. Buono in the US Supreme Court and Lautsi v. Italy in the European Court of Human Rights. We have a great lineup of speakers, including Tom Berg, Cole Durham, Silvio Ferrari, and Ninth Circuit Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain. Details are here. CLR Forum readers in Rome, stop by and say hello.
