Analysis and Commentary on Law and Religion

About Robin Miller Radner

Robin Miller Radner has studied and written about the First Amendment Religion Clauses for more than thirty years. Her lifelong commitment to the research and understanding of religions, their histories, and agendas, is rooted in her own eclectic religious upbringing.


Robin received a B.A. in Political Science from Nazareth College of Rochester and her law degree from the University of Buffalo where she was heavily influenced by that school’s strong tradition of preparing lawyers for service in the public interest. As a civil litigator, she specialized in education law, with an emphasis on constitutional issues in public schools. She went on to become a child protective advocate and trial attorney.


Since 2011 she has worked to educate both the general public and the legal community about the unique and complex history of law and religion in America. She has spoken to community groups, professional organizations, and religious congregations.


She lives outside of Boston with her husband and a very spry three-legged rescue dog named Miley.
