Webinar – Religious Autonomy: The Higher Education Implications of Our Lady of Guadalupe
Thursday, August 6th, 2020
3:00pm – 4:00pm ET
Speaker: William E. Thro, General Counsel of the University of Kentucky
The Supreme Court’s decision in Our Lady of Guadalupe School v. Morrisey-Berru represents a significant expansion of religious liberty with profound implications for higher education. The Court, by a vote of 7-2, held that the First Amendment Religion Clauses protect the right of churches and other religious institutions to decide matters of faith and doctrine without government intrusion.
Please join William E. Thro, General Counsel of the University of Kentucky, as he explores both the decision and its implications for higher education. Specifically, this webinar will give background on the decision and the Court’s reasoning, how this decision expands the definition of “ministerial exception,” and its impact on Private Religious Institutions and Student Religious Organizations at Public Institutions.
