The Supreme Court:
Religion and the First Amendment
2012-2013 Term

As the nation’s last court of appeal, the Supreme Court of the United States reviews annually as many as 150 lower courts decisions. Cases concerning religion and the relationship between Church and State are consistently among the most contentious.  The Supreme Court’s 2011-2012 term was no exception. 

Each term of the Supreme Court begins on the first Monday of October and ends on the first Monday of October the following year. During the Court’s 2012-2013 term, CSPC will report on all Supreme Court decisions regarding religion in the public sphere as they arise.
