TELESEMINAR: Law of Religious Organizations, Part 2 – A National Perspective
April 23, 2014
12:00 – 1:00 p.m.
1.00 MCLE hours
There is often a tension between religious organizations – churches and church-affiliated groups, like child care centers and health clinics – and civil law. Unlike other nonprofit organizations, they have specifically faith-based missions that may run counter to the patterns of civil law – or have special exemptions from it. This includes tax and real estate law, health care law and principles of nonprofit governance, employment law and the First Amendment. The array of issues confronting these organizations can be bewildering. This program will provide you with a real-world guide to the law of religious organizations, including discussions of employment, health care, tax, First Amendment, governance and civil litigation issues. Part 2 of 2.
