Asma Uddin is a religious liberty lawyer and scholar working for the protection of religious expression for people of all faiths in the U.S. and abroad. After graduating from The University of Chicago Law School, Uddin served as Counsel for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty and as Director of Strategy for the Center for Islam and Religious Freedom in Washington, D.C. Uddin has worked on religious liberty cases at the U.S. Supreme Court, federal appellate courts, and federal trial courts.
The mission of the John Dickinson Forum for the Study of America’s Founding Principles, a JMC partner program, is to promote thoughtful study, discussion, and debate about America’s founding principles. It hopes to encourage conversations about whether or how these principles are relevant today. The Forum supports a variety of activities including lectures, book/current event discussion groups, and debates. It also partners with other institutions to make programming available to students at other schools and to the general public throughout the Pacific Northwest.
This event is supported by Jack Miller Center’s Pacific Northwest Initiative: Advancing Education in America’s Founding Principles and History. Thanks to the generous grant from MJ Murdock Charitable Trust, JMC is working with faculty to organize exciting campus events in the region. The Initiative also provides programs, conferences and other opportunities for professors in the PNW—all to help them make a difference in the education of their students.
