Brigham Young University Prelaw Review


religious liberty, property, first amendment rights, intersectionality, Bill of Rights, Due Process


Religious liberty and property remain two cherished human rights protected under Constitutional law in the United States. While the precedent for both rights include robust protection frameworks, religious liberty is increasingly threatened through a weakening in case law precedent. Property law offers valuable nuances and insights for how the religious liberty legal framework might be strengthened in theory and in practice. Human rights are inherently bundled, therefore, there is significant benefit to analyzing the intersectionality of religious liberty and property law both historically and currently in United States case law.
