The 19th Annual Edward Brodsky Legal Conference: The Boundaries of Religious Freedom - Mandates, Choices, and Liberties
Tuesday, March 5, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) 19th annual Edward Brodsky Legal Conference will take place on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 at 6 PM at The New York Times Center in New York City. Our topic, “The Boundaries of Religious Freedom: Mandates, Choices, and Liberties” will focus on situations where a religious or religiously-affiliated individual or entity is engaged in secular activities and is testing the limits of religious freedom by seeking exemption from government requirements, e.g., the contraception mandate, anti-bullying education in public school, civil rights laws, etc.
This year’s conference is a part of ADL’s 100th anniversary and, specifically, a part of our Civil Rights Centennial Series around the country. The conference begins with a cocktail reception and concludes with dessert. The program lasts approximately 90 minutes, including Q-and-A at the end. We offer 2.0 CLE credits for all legal practicioners.
The Conference is held, thanks to the generosity of Cynthia Brodsky in memory of her husband, Edward, who was a distinguished lawyer and a Senior Partner with Proskauer Rose LLP. His strong belief in the law as a vehicle for civil rights, social justice, and peaceful conflict resolution led him to help found the ADL’s Lawyers division and to serve as a Founding Chair of the annual ADL Legal Conference, which, after his death, was renamed for him.
The Lawyers Division builds support in the New York legal community through leadership and involvement. It is composed of prominent attorneys from New York’s leading firms and corporations, as well as solo practitioners and is a unique philanthropic part of the New York Regional Board. The Division conducts legal educational briefings and programs, formulates legal projects and makes recommendations on policy issues that support ADL goals. The funds raised through our various fundraising initiatives ensure that ADL continues its work in building bridges of communication, understanding and respect among diverse groups.
