Organisation and Membership of the Centre

The Centre, regulated by its constitution as approved by the university authorities, is under the general control of the Centre Committee, composed of the Director and the Research Fellows.

The extent of the activities of the Centre is dependent on the level of financial support received externally, and the Centre Committee is responsible for stimulating external funding.

Associate Membership

The Centre would like to extend participation in its work by inviting those concerned with Law and Religion to consider becoming Associate Members.

Distinguished scholars may be invited by the Centre Committee to become Academic Associate Members of the Centre for Law and Religion.

Legal practitioners involved in the practice of any aspect of church law may become Professional Associate Members - either corporately through their law firms (where appropriate) or as individuals. Graduates of the LL.M. in Canon Law are eligible to become graduate Associate Members. The Centre Committee has also recently established "The Friends of the Centre for Law and Religion", under the Presidency of the current Dean of the Arches, one function of which is to seek financial support for the activities of the Centre.
