Journal of Law and Religion moves from Hamline to Emory

The Journal of Law and Religion has a new home at the Center for the Study of Law and Religion at Emory University School of Law. It was previously at Hamline University School of Law, where is was founded in 1982. 

“We are pleased to serve as the new editorial home for the Journal,” said John Witte, CSLR director and new co-editor of the Journal. “As our center expands its geographical and topical reach, the time is ripe to welcome the Journal and make it the leading international journal in the field.”

With a refreshed editorial direction that invites the best scholarship from around the world, articles will address broader legal issues in the world’s religions and cultures, including the place of law in religious canons, sacred texts and religious traditions; and the place of ritual and liturgy in the operation of state legal and political systems.
