Religious Arbitration in America and the West

Michael J. Broyde

  • Explores why religious individuals and communities are increasingly turning to private faith-based dispute resolution to arbitrate their litigious disputes
  • Examines why American law is so comfortable with faith-based arbitration, and argues that secular societies should use secular legal frameworks to enforce religious arbitration
  • Considers the proper procedural, jurisdictional, and contractual limits of arbitration, particularly religious arbitration
  • Focuses on whether secular societies should facilitate effective, legally enforceable religious dispute resolution
