In a largely secular Britain faith is again a hot topic. Its political dimensions have attracted considerable attention but there has been relatively little about its legal implications. This series of three lectures will start the debate.

Kurshid Ahmed is president of the National Association of British Pakistanis. Tariq Baloch is lecturer in the Law Department at LSE. The Rt Hon Frank Field is MP for Birkenhead. Professor Mona Siddiqui is professor of Islamic studies and public understanding at University of Glasgow. Roger Bolton presents for BBC Radio 4's Sunday and Feedback programmes.

The Law and Faith series is sponsored by JUSTICE.
