Law, religion scholar Noah Feldman at BYU forum Nov. 17

Noah Feldman, an American author and professor of law at Harvard Law School, will speak at a Brigham Young University campus forum Tuesday, Nov. 17, at 11:05 a.m. in the Marriott Center. Following his address, Feldman will also be available for a question-and-answer session in the Assembly Hall of the Gordon B. Hinckley Alumni and Visitors Center.

The forum will be presented live on the BYU Broadcasting channels. Please note that there will be no rebroadcasts or published copy of Feldman’s address.

Feldman specializes in constitutional studies, with particular emphasis on the relationship between law and religion, constitutional design and the history of legal theory. Before joining Harvard faculty, he was a professor of law at New York University School of Law, a visiting professor at Yale Law School and a fellow of the Whitney Humanities Center.

He is the author of several books, including “What We Owe Iraq: War and the Ethics of Nation Building” and “Divided By God: America's Church-State Problem and What We Should Do About It.” In 2003, Feldman served as a constitutional adviser to the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq and subsequently advised the Iraqi Governing Council on the drafting of the Transitional Administrative Law.

Feldman received his bachelor’s degree summa cum laude in Near Eastern languages and civilizations from Harvard University and was selected as a Rhodes Scholar to Oxford University, where he earned a doctor of philosophy degree in Islamic thought. Upon his return from Oxford, he received a law degree from Yale Law School.
