Chicago Kent Students Organize Panel Discussion regarding Proposed New York Muslim Cultural Center

On September 28, 2010, Professor Steven Heyman, Attorney Mazen Asbahi and Professor Sheldon Nahmod participated in a panel discussion at Chicago-Kent College of Law on the “Ground Zero Mosque”–the proposed Islamic cultural center–in Manhattan.

It was sponsored by Kent’s Society of Law Students for Secularism (which organized the event) and co-sponsored by the Muslim Law Students Association, the National Lawyers Guild and the Institute for Law and Humanities.
Professor Nahmod spoke about the Religion Clauses and federal statutory law, Professor Heyman addressed the nature of the political discourse and Mr. Asbahi discussed the topic from an American Muslim perspective.
