The chapter provides an account of the many levels of relations between religion and law in England. The first section briefly outlines the historical developments leading to the establishment of the Church of England as the legally established church, and explains the current legal position of the Church of England and its relation to the Monarchy and the State. Subsequent sections analyse and discuss (a) the influence of Christianity on the English legal system, (b) the ways in which the English legal system accommodates other religions and religious organisations, (c) how religious beliefs and actions are accommodated in the work place, and (d) the legal and political response to ‘religious adjudication’ in Shariah councils or similar bodies. The chapter concludes that the English legal approach to the non-established religions can be described as a form of ‘benign neglect’. The State does not grant explicit minority group rights to religious groups, but it does not usually interfere in their internal affairs either.
