Re: Nomi Stolzenberg

Nomi Stolzenberg wrote an expert analysis about the history of the intersection between religion and the U.S. Supreme Court. "As a scholar who has studied the intersection of faith and law, I know that religion has always played a strong role in shaping the composition of the United States Supreme Court," she wrote. "The specific nature of that influence, however, has changed over time." The expert analysis also appeared in Church Leaders and Yahoo! Sports. It originally appeared in The Conversation.
