Religion and Law

Annual Conference Law, Religion, and American Healthcare

Deadline: 

12/1/14

Event Date: 

05/8/15 to 05/9/15

Location name: 

Cambridge, MA

Organization: 

The Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School

Religion and medicine have historically gone hand in hand, but increasingly have come into conflict in the U.S. as health care has become both more secular and more heavily regulated.  Law has a dual role here, simultaneously generating conflict between religion and health care, for example through new coverage mandates or legally permissible medical interventions that violate religious norms, while also acting as a tool for religious accommodation and protection of conscience.
