Professor Daniel O. Conkle attended a Conference on Law and Religion at Loyola University Chicago Feb. 2-3. Professor Conkle participated in an exchange with Professor Mark Tushnet of Georgetown, who presented a paper entitled "The Redundant Free Exercise Clause?" Conkle's paper, responding to Tushnet's, was entitled "The Free Exercise Clause: How Redundant, and Why?"
