Centre for Law and ReligionCentre for Law and Religion



The Centre of Law and Religion exists to promote research and its dissemination in the field of law and religion. The activities of the Centre are carried out in relation to both the theory and practice of substantive law concerning religion.

The Centre contributes to the Teaching and Learning Programme of Cardiff Law School at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. 'Comparative Law of Religion', which is a modular course, is offered as an optional element of Cardiff University’s undergraduate degrees in Law. The Masters Degree in Canon Law is a part-time LL.M taught over eight residential weekends over two years.

In both cases, the teaching is research-led, focussing not only on legal rules and concepts but also on theological, historical, sociological, philosophical and comparative perspectives.
