Professor Laurence Winer recently contributed to an international conference with his presentation “The United States Tax Law Ban on Political Campaign Speech by Houses of Worship: Inappropriate Government Censorship and Intrusion on Religion,” with Nina J. Crimm, professor of law at Washington University.

Winer and Crimm recently co-authored Politics, Taxes and The Pulpit: Provocative First Amendment Conflicts, published by Oxford Press.

The conference, “Religious Law and State’s Affairs”, took place at Bar-Ilan University in Israel on May 31 and examined differing perspectives on religious law in war, economy and society and also the politics of religious law expression.

Winer’s scholarship focuses on the First Amendment and government regulation of the media and includes published articles, amicus briefs and various government filings.
