AbstractLegal scholars have recently advanced theories emphasizing the importance of perspectives in the law. Perspective scholarship recognizes that laws are necessarily shaped by society's dominant forces, including its biases and preconceptions. Perspective scholars attempt to understand how these forces have shaped our laws, and they suggest changes to accommodate those affected by society's biases.

Professor Levine discusses these cases in his presentation of the central themes of a religious minority perspective, as he illuminates perspective theory in general
