Annotations on CLSA Advisory Opinions


Overview

 

 

Since 1984, the Canon Law Society of America has published private advisory opinions on a variety of canonical topics. While carrying only the persuasive value of the arguments adduced therein, these opinions are of great value to practitioners of canon law. CLSA advisory opinions appear annually in its Roman Replies and CLSA Advisory Opinions and are then gathered decennially or quinquenially, as circumstances suggest, and republished, sometimes in an edited form. Three such volumes (for 1984-1993, 1994-2000, and 2001-2005) have been released to date.

 

An index of advisory opinions prepared by the CLSA is available here.

Each citation to an advisory opinion below is followed by a concise summary of the opinion written by me. For the sake of timeliness, I summarized the version of the opinion as it appeared in the annual volume, and have not attempted to compare the later version for possible variations. I strove for accuracy in my summaries, of course, but original authors might not agree with my presentation of their views. It is important to recall, too, that advisory opinions often differ with one another. Such disagreement is but the stuff of which legal argument is made, and eventually, contributes to the process by which maturation of law is achieved.
