Abstract

This introduction provides a preface to the Pepperdine Law Review symposium from the Third Annual Religious Legal Theory Conference on "The Competing Claims of Law & Religion: Who Should Influence Whom." As the introduction notes, the relationship between law and religion is both fraught with tension but also provides great opportunity. In so doing, the introduction sketches some of the varied responses to conflicts between law and religion, providing a brief overview of the papers included in the symposium issue.

Keywords: law, religion, symposium
