    Socio-economics recognizes that faith in a higher power can affect economic behavior, as well as social behavior more generally, and that large numbers of citizens in the U.S. and other countries are people of faith.  How does this relate to law?  Do various areas of the law acknowledge or ignore, impede or permit, the influence of these socio-economic facts?  Are there promising avenues to explore, and pitfalls to be avoided, in studying the interplay of faith and law?  These subjects will be explored through the example of corporate law – where scholarship and jurisprudence seem to contain little recognition of faith’s influence – with the expectation that the panel’s discussion will broaden beyond corporate law, to explore potential lines of inquiry in the faith/law area.
