Workshop Offerings
A. Walking the Halls of Knowledge: Catholic Schools, Canon Law
Reverend Monsignor William J. King
Models of governance and sponsorship in Catholic education are evolving as economic and legal issues come into contact with Gospel mandates to teach and catechize. This workshop will examine sponsorship, governance, and property tenure in Catholic schools through the lens of canon law: What does the Code of Canon Law say about Catholic schools and other educational apostolates, and how can they be structured? Particular attention will be paid to the canonical institute of the public juridic person, especially through discussion of the practical interface between state law and canon law in areas such as governance, liability, oversight of mission, property tenure, and Catholic identity.

B. Defending the Bond Today: A Practical Workshop for Defenders of the Bond
Reverend Monsignor Joseph R. Punderson
This workshop will study in depth the office of the defender of the bond, especially in light of the 1983 Code of Canon Law and the 2005 Instruction /Dignitas Connubii. It will cover such topics as: 1) a brief history of the office of defender of the bond, 2) the role of the defender in relation to the other offices and roles in the tribunal, 3) the rights and duties of the defender at each stage of the judicial process, 4) the animadversions of the defender in general and in regard to specific grounds of nullity.

The workshop is intended specifically for defenders of the bond, but would be useful for others such as judicial vicars and judges who work closely with defenders.
