Professor Leslie Griffin Contributes to Huffington Post Conversation

Dr. Leslie C. Griffin is a William S. Boyd Professor of Law at UNLV.

On Dec. 10, she contributed to a Huffington Post conversation titled The Devil Went Down to Oklahoma. Satanists are seeking to erect a statue of their own alongside a Ten Commandments monument outside the Oklahoma capitol building. Several experts, including Professor Griffin, commented on the issue.

"If this Oklahoma case is government speech, then the Satanists would have a hard time winning. If this is government speech, there should be an Establishment Clause issue which the government can't prefer one religion to another," she said during the conversation. 

Professor Griffin, who teaches constitutional law, is known for her interdisciplinary work in law and religion.
