Higher Education 

The First Amendment protects students’ free exercise of religion. It also provides that government may not act in ways that aid one religion, aid all religions or prefer one religion over another. The tension among these protections often puts administrators, teachers and coaches in difficult situations. This webinar will address recent decisions involving religious student organizations, school prayer, student mission trips, teaching religion and other situations that invite constitutional scrutiny, as well as provide suggestions for avoiding lawsuits from students and parents.
