L’enseignement en droit des religions

In France, the expression "law of religion" refers to a number of disciplines.
On the European level, the "European law of religions" comprises the law of religion of the Member States of the European Union and the law of the European Convention on Human Rights (CEDH). The "comparative law of religions" makes a comparative evaluation of the legal status of religious denominations in each one of the Member States of the EU.
On a national level, the law of religion analyses the perception of the French law over the religions.
Finally, within the framework of religious denominations, the interest is in the organisation and the internal legal system of the different religions. This refers to the "internal law of religions", that is, the canon law, the Muslim law, etc.

There are few institutions offering specific courses on the law of religions :
