BJC General Counsel Holly Hollman will deliver the 2017 Walter B. and Kay W. Shurden Lectures on Religious Liberty and Separation of Church and State. The 12th installment of the annual series will be held March 27-28 at Campbell University in Buies Creek, North Carolina.
Since joining the Baptist Joint Committee in 2001, Hollman has prepared friend-of-the court briefs, issue briefings for congressional staff and presentations for research institutions and religious groups. She consults regularly with churches, individuals and organizations about religious liberty issues as well as the national media. A member of the U.S. Supreme Court Bar, Hollman also serves as an adjunct professor of law at the Georgetown University Law Center, where she co-teaches the Church-State Law Seminar.
In 2004, the Shurdens of Macon, Georgia, made a gift to the BJC to establish the annual lecture series. Previous lecturers have included constitutional scholars, religious leaders and historians. The lectures and surrounding events will be free and open to the public. For additional information on the lecture series, visit our website at BJConline.org/ShurdenLectures.
