Abstract

Evaluates arguments supporting an expanded role for religious courts and tribunals within the secular legal system, including that: (1) the denial of religious jurisdiction over civil law matters forces litigants to choose between their legal rights and religious identities; (2) secular court supervision can protect women and sexual minorities from oppressive decisions; and (3) the secular legal order can influence change in the religious law.
