Structural Free Exercise, Mary Ann Glendon, Raul F. Yanes Jan 1991

Structural Free Exercise, Mary Ann Glendon, Raul F. Yanes

Michigan Law Review

In Part I of this article, we analyze the development of case law interpreting the religious freedom language of the First Amendment from the 1940s to the eve of the rights revolution as a casualty of the piecemeal approach to incorporation, compounded by a series of judicial lapses and oversights. Part II deals with the fate of the Religion Clause in the era of the rights revolution, when the free exercise and establishment provisions were deployed in the service of a constitutional agenda to which they were, in themselves, largely peripheral. The current period of doctrinal change is the subject …

Roman Canon Law In The Medieval English Church: Stubbs Vs. Maitland Re-Examined After 75 Years In The Light Of Some Records From The Church Courts, Charles Donahue Jr.

Michigan Law Review

The Right Reverend William Stubbs, D.D. (1825-1901), was the Anglican Bishop of Oxford, sometime Regius Professor of Modern History at Oxford, and a scholar of considerable repute.
