Faculty News

  • Professor Dallan Flake presented his latest research paper, "Reasonable Religious Accommodations," at the Chicagoland Junior Scholars Conference, the Central States Law Schools Association Annual Meeting, and the Colloquium on Scholarship in Employment and Labor Law. He argues in the paper that courts are wrong to evaluate the reasonableness of a religious accommodation solely from the employer's perspective. Instead, courts should consider the burden an accommodation would impose on the employer and employee alike. The paper proposes a new conceptualization of reasonableness that focuses, in part, on how an accommodation would impact an employee's terms or conditions of employment. 
  • Professor Rebecca Rosenberg spoke at the Southeastern Association of Law Schools (SEALS) Conference in Boca Raton, FL. As part of a panel called “Tax Policy Reforms in the 21st Century,” she presented on the topic of “Foreign tax credits after the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: Still important, and better than accurate."
