Guiora to Speak at Utah State Bar Summer Convention

On Friday, July 16, Amos Guiora, a professor of law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law and counter-terrorism expert, will speak at the Utah State Bar Summer Convention in Sun Valley, Idaho. Guiora’s topic is “Freedom from Religion.”

“Western nations are for the freedoms of religion and speech,” Guiora says. “Freedom from Religion challenges the almost sacrosanct inviolability of freedom of religion and freedom of speech. By drawing the connection between politically correct tolerance of extremist speech and the rise of terrorist activity, the book sets the context for a proposal that governments should introduce new limits on religious practice within their borders. My book Freedom from Religion: National Security and Rights examines the disparate policies and security circumstances of five countries: the U.S., the UK, the Netherlands, Turkey, and Israel. I look forward to discussing the book and my proposals with members of the Utah Bar Association.”

Guiora will speak from 8:30-9:30 a.m. in Salon B at the Sun Valley Resort.
