WASHINGTON – Stradley Ronon Partner Mark Chopko served as a panelist for the American Bar Association Section of Civil Rights and Social Justice webinar “Religious Freedom Implications of the COVID-19 Pandemic” on April 13. The webinar discussed the religious liberty implications of the pandemic-related restrictions on assembling for religious purposes, and other questions presented by responses to the pandemic, both in terms of impact on religious organizations and as they relate to other church-state concerns.

Chopko chairs Stradley Ronon’s nonprofit and religious organizations practice group and advises clients, including colleges and universities, in matters involving structural, business, governance, regulatory and complex litigation. He specializes in defending religious organizations and also teaches a seminar on church-state law at Georgetown University Law Center.
