Pepperdine Law and Religion Conference

Following on Rob's posts from Saturday's plenary session, I wanted to praise the work of Bob Cochran and the other organizers of the Pepperdine Nootbaar Institute's law and religion conference over the weekend and the hospitality of Dean Deanell Tacha. In addition to many of the MOJ bloggers, it was great to be in the company of such a large number of generous and interesting colleagues engaged in law and religion. Mike Paulsen and Andy Koppelman started off the conference with a pair of provocative papers and that pace was sustained through the Saturday panel with James Davison Hunter and Steven Smith. I've often stolen the line from Stanley Hauerwas that I don't believe in California. But discussing law and religion in Malibu amid bright sunshine and 70-degree weather, enjoying Paco's Tacos with Kevin Walsh in West LA, and looking over Santa Monica Bay from the Getty Villa are enough to make me wonder if perhaps there really is a California after all.

Thanks so much for your post! And thank you to all who joined us at Pepperdine for the 3rd Annual Religious Legal Theory Conference, "The Competing Claims of Law & Religion."
