September 14, 2019. Conference on “Religious Lawyering at Twenty.” sponsored by Council on Religion and Law (CORAL) and Institute on Religion, Law & Lawyer’s Work at Fordham University School of Law.  Fordham University School of Law.  New York City.

Perry Dane especially addressed the question whether Jews who have immersed themselves, at least to some degree, in Jewish legal thinking have a distinctive attitude toward secular law.

Perry Dane had addressed this question for myself in a very autobiographical piece – a sort of intellectual memoir – that he wrote a few years ago titled “Judaism, Pluralism, and Constitutional Glare,” which was part of a symposium on “Judaism’s Influence on American Legal Scholarship.”
