Regional Litigation Academy

Reminder: ADF, TFF Sponsor Regional Litigation Academy September 23-24 In Arlington

What do lawyers and pastors have in common? Plenty, especially when it comes to defending religious liberty against encroaching progressive secularism that means to do away with as much faith-based influence in society and the public square as possible. So here's a reminder for attorneys and pastors: The Alliance Defense Fund and The Family Foundation are sponsoring a Regional Litigation Academy in Arlington next month. Registration closes on September 10. The RLA is a one-and-a-half-day continuing education seminar for attorneys, pastors and church administrators. Pending approval, the RLA is worth eight Continuing Legal Education credits (including one ethics credit) in Virginia. The RLA is on Thursday, September 23, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., and Friday, September 24, from 8:00 a.m. to noon at the Sheraton Crystal City Hotel Arlington (1800 Jefferson Davis Highway). The registration fee is $25 and includes lunch on the first day and all materials. 

Sessions include Protecting the Church as a Non-Profit Corporation: Counsel, Strategies and Tactics; Protecting the Marketplace of Ideas: Combating Campus Censorship; Protecting Life, both Young and Old: Emerging Issues and Responsive Strategies, and others.

The Family Foundation is honored to partner with ADF again to sponsor this timely and informative academy on the precious topic of protecting religious liberty. Our past experiences in hosting RLAs prove them to be one of the most worthwhile and educational CLE opportunities available to attorneys. For pastors, it is a great chance to learn more about the threats to religious liberty and how to stop them.

Calling All Attorneys And Pastors

Pastors and attorneys have a lot in common. Or at least a lot of common interests. Maybe its a minimal distinction. Still, both are true. In short, both do a lot of public speaking in hopes of convincing people to a certain truth or point of view. The two also have complementary connections, especially in this age of aggressive secularism that seeks to preclude religious expression wherever possible. In light of that, and the era in which we live where religious liberty and the rights of religious expression in the public square are under constant attack, we have partnered with the Alliance Defense Fund to host a Regional Litigation Academy. This one-day continuing education seminar for attorneys, pastors and church administrators is Wednesday, April 22, at the Westin Richmond, 6631 West Broad Street. We invite all attorneys and pastors to attend.

Sessions include:

 

» Vindicating God Talk: Winning Religious Expression;

» Litigation, Politics and the Pulpit: Can a Pastor Really Say That??!!;

» The City of God Meets The City of Man: Defending Public Invocations; and other topics of pastoral concern. 

 

Registration on the 22nd will begin at 8:15 a.m. and the academy will end at 3:15 p.m. The registration fee is $50 and includes all materials and lunch. You can register online by April 15 by clicking here. You also may register through ADF by calling Leah Rose at 480-444-8067 or by e-mailing her at lrose@telladf.org.

For pastors, it will be a great chance to learn more about the threats to religious liberty and what can be done to stop those threats.
