Jeremy Patrick is a Lecturer in Law at the University of Southern Queensland. He comes to USQ by way of Nebraska and Toronto, and his experience teaching constitutional law in three countries has enabled him to bring a comparative approach to his research. His work can be found in American, Canadian, and Australian journals such as the Journal of Law and Religion, the University of British Columbia Law Review, and the University of Queensland Law Journal (forthcoming). He is currently researching how legal principles of freedom of religion apply to the growing number of believers who self-identify as "spiritual but not religious."
