Canonical Save-the-Dates: August 3 & 4, 2010

The intersections between canon and civil law in America are becoming ever busier and trickier to navigate. It's with real excitement, then, that I am giving Canon Law Blog readers a heads-up for a summer conference brimming with canonical and civil expertise.

Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse, WI, is hosting a Canon Law Conference for Canonists and Civil Attorneys on Tuesday and Wednesday, August 3 and 4, 2010. It will feature several of today's most important American (or Roman, as the case may be!) canonists, including canonist Abp. Raymond Burke (Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura), canon and civil lawyer Rev. James Conn, sj, (editor of the Gregorian University's Periodica de re Canonica), and canon and civil lawyer Rev. John Coughlin, ofm, (Special Professor of Law and Theology at Notre Dame).

I can't imagine missing this terrific line-up, and I hope many of my readers can visit especially-lovely-in-the-summer Wisconsin for some stimulating discussions of canon and civil law.

See you there!
