With more than 31,000 members, FFRF, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, works as a watchdog to protect the constitutional principle of the separation of state and church. The Freedom From Religion Foundation, based in Madison, Wis., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational charity, is the nation's largest association of freethinkers (atheists, agnostics), and has been working since 1978 to keep religion and government separate. All dues and donations are deductible for income-tax purposes.
For 40 years, FFRF has served as a leading voice for freethought in America.
Law schools, scholars of labor and employment law, labor and employment law historians and students can benefit greatly from the intellectual and practical value available through the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers.
The College’s primary mission includes supporting creative and thoughtful teaching of Labor and Employment Law, supporting and enhancing the existing curriculum, bringing depth of real life experience to law students through visiting professor and mentoring programs, and pushing the traditional boundaries to bring the current and dramatically changing legal environment into clearer focus.The deadline for submissions is Sunday, June 30, 2019. Students enrolled in a JD, LLB, or other first degree program in law at an accredited faculty outside the United States may also participate.Students must be in good standing at their institutions.The prescribed word length is between 850-1,000 words, not including footnotes.The contest is open to all ongoing students up to age 30 attending a North American law school, including those graduating from law school by spring or summer of 2019.Such bills, often misleadingly described as “conscience clauses,” may allow providers (parents, companies, landlords, health care workers, shopkeepers, etc.) to refuse services based on the provider’s personal religious beliefs.Students are asked to pick a religious refusal bill in any state under consideration or enacted in the current legislative session and evaluate whether the bill strikes an appropriate balance between the religious rights of service providers and the civil and equal protection rights of members of the public most likely to be refused services.The essay is due no later than midnight, July 1, 2019. “The Freedom From Religion Foundation is proud to bring the gospel of freethought to our centers of legal learning,” says FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor.“Law students must be made aware of the secular foundation of our country.” Additional information and contest rules can be found at.For more information, please contact our administrative office at 410-972-4711 or email our Executive Director, Susan Wan, at [email protected] College does not provide legal counsel or advice.Fellows of the College may be available to provide legal counsel in their individual capacities as labor and employment lawyers.
