Prayer and University Commencement: Application of "Lee v. Weisman."
Colwell, W. Bradley; Thurston, Paul W.
West's Education Law Quarterly, v4 n1 p115-22 Jan 1995
Discusses reasons why the "Lee v. Weisman" Supreme Court decision that held unconstitutional a Rhode Island school policy for prayer at a junior high school commencement does not extend to the university level. Concludes that an appropriately worded commencement prayer could pass the three-part "Lemon" threshold and not violate the Constitution. (MLF)
