2020 CLS National Conference Special Events



Anglican Legal Society
Contemporary Issues in Canon Law
Thursday, October 15
12:00 pm - 5:00 pm ET

If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, and He has led you to serve as an attorney or chancellor among Anglicans in North America, or if you simply have an interest in canon law, this track is for you! This annual gathering of the Anglican Legal Society (ALS) aims to build a network of biblically-faithful attorneys to serve the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) and its congregations, facilitate communication between members, share best practices, and develop strategies for protecting our religious freedoms at every level of the Church.

Participants are encouraged to “bring” their lunch to the introductory breakout sessions with like-minded attorneys on Zoom. Other sessions will include panel presentations on Title IV Ecclesiastical Discipline, the implications of the ABA Model Rule 8.4(g) for Christian attorneys, and presentations on selected papers in canon law.

Join us to fellowship with Baptist and other Christian attorneys.

Overwhelmed? Discouraged? Uncertain? You aren’t the only one! InterVarsity's Women in the Academy and Professions invites you to join us as we gather women lawyers and law students to process some of the challenges and some of the joys of the recent months. There will be lots of interactive discussion and some encouragement from the Scripture. We hope to see you there!
