Freedom of Religion
Welcome to LawShelf’s video-course on freedom of religion. This course focuses on the first two clauses of the First Amendment to the US Constitution: the clauses prohibiting the government from “establishing” a national religion and the clause preventing the government from “prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” This course focuses, in roughly equal parts, on these two clauses and how they are interpreted and applied.
Best of luck and we welcome your feedback.
What is a video-course?
A LawShelf video-course is an in-depth series of presentations on a discreet legal topic. LawShelf video-courses focus on practical legal information and applications and are each designed to familiarize the viewer with a legal topic quickly and efficiently.
Who should take a video-course?
Our video courses are designed for professionals such as attorneys, paralegals, corporate officers and financial professionals, as well as laypeople looking to deepen their knowledge of particular areas of law. The courses allow you to acquire the specific knowledge and skills that you need without the expense and time commitment of going “back to school” for a degree.
How do I learn?
Video courses are divided into 5 or 6 modules. Each module contains a video lesson (usually about 15 minutes long) and a series of self-test questions that you can use to practice and make sure that you understand the material.
How do I complete a video-course?
To complete a video-course, you must pass a 10-question multiple-choice examination by scoring 70% or higher. The questions on the exam are randomly selected from the self-test question sets for the various modules. You can retake an exam as many times as you need to, though you will not get the same questions each time since the questions are drawn from an exam bank.
Is there limit to how many video-courses I can take or complete?
No. A LawShelf subscription enables you to access any and all LawShelf content, including all video-courses. You can take courses as quickly or slowly as your time allows.
Do I receive any recognition for completing a video-course?
Once you complete the course by passing the final exam, you will be awarded a digital badge to display as evidence of your training and accomplishment.
How will a digital badge help me?
Modern educational trends are moving away from traditional classroom-based course completion models and towards skills-based education. Employers today care more about skills than ever before. LawShelf digital badges conform to the Open Badge standard and are verifiable records of your skills that can easily be shared online.
