Third-year SU Law Center student Scott D. Harrington has been named the winner of The National Law Review
Law Student Writing Competition for April. Harrington's article, "No
Soup for You! Religion in the Post-PPACA Era," is published in The National Law Review.
The article analyzes the treatment of religion under the current legislative and jurisprudential climate in light of the historical evolution of religious protections under the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and subsequent federal law.
The National Law Review compiles timely, well-researched articles submitted from law reviews, law journals, law firm newsletters, bar associations, and original thought leadership. A group of in-house attorneys and business leaders developed The National Law Review on-line edition.
