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.
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.
If you fall into one of the categories described
above, and you would like to become an associate member of the Centre,
then please contact the Centre's Director (Click here).
Benefits of Associate Membership includes a regular
newsletter detailing the activities of the Centre, and recent developments
in ecclesiastical jurisprudence.
