TSC 511 The Eastern Code of Canon Law and Latin Tribunal Personnel
Faculty: Rev. Jude Onogbosele, J.C.D. (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
Canon 1102 §1 of the Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches [CCEO] foresees that Eastern Catholic Bishops or major superiors can employ judges and tribunal personnel from other Churches sui iuris—including the Latin Church—in addressing the judicial needs of their faithful. Therefore, a working knowledge of the similarities and differences between the Oriental and Latin codes may prove to be essential for canonists who minister in both Latin and Eastern tribunals. The ultimate goal of this tutorial is to familiarize the canonist with the Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches, promulgated by Pope John Paul II on 18 October 1990.
