    Attorney General Jeff Sessions is scheduled to appear in Boston for a speech on religious liberty.

    The nation's top lawyer is expected to give remarks Monday at an event organized by the Boston Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society.

    It's being billed as a discussion on "the future of religious liberty'' at the Omni Parker House hotel in the city's downtown.

    Sessions will be joined by U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling of the District of Massachusetts and Jordan Lorence, senior counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom.

    Before being sworn in as attorney general in 2017, Sessions served as a Republican U.S. senator for Alabama for two decades.
