Working To Make Sure We Don’t Live In A Theocracy


In this episode, I’m joined by Elizabeth Reiner Platt, the Director of the Law, Rights, and Religion Project at Columbia Law School. Together, we talk about what the career path is once you make the decision to go to law school. We also discuss what the connection is between law, rights, and the practices of other religions.

Elizabeth shares her findings after doing research on abortion access and abortion rights. Additionally, she cites the other areas people should be thinking about in terms of religion not actually with other liberties, and why people should care that religion is being treated the way it is by the court.


The Jabot podcast is an offshoot of the Above the Law brand focused on the challenges women, people of color, LGBTQIA, and other diverse populations face in the legal industry. Our name comes from none other than the Notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the jabot (decorative collar) she wore when delivering dissents from the bench. It’s a reminder that even when we aren’t winning, we’re still a powerful force to be reckoned with.

Happy listening!
