The Canon Law Society of America was founded in 1939 and has held an annual convention, usually in October, every year since. For the first thirty years, presentations made at the convention were published, if anywhere, in the pages of The Jurist. But beginning with the thirty-first annual meeting (1969), convention proceedings have been published in monograph form. This greatly facilitates the ability of researchers to access the considerable canonical and theological insights developed for and shared at CLSA conventions. My Guide to the Convention Proceedings of the Canon Law Society of America is offered in service to those wishing to make more efficient use of CLSA Proceedings. The Guide, which features author, titles, and my abstract of the articles, currently covers 1969-1986, inclusive, and is augmented periodically.
