Letter from the Chairman: 3 June

A round-robin to update members on how the Society has been continuing its activities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Northern Province Lecture to go online

The second Northern Province lecture in the 2020 series is to be given by Bishop Helen-Ann Hartley on “Law and life in the Anglican Communion” on 25 June at 5:30pm. Due to the present circumstances, we are intending for this lecture to take place online, using Zoom or equivalent technology, rather than in person as originally planned.

Ecclesiastical Law Journal

Published three times a year by Cambridge University Press on behalf of the Ecclesiastical Law Society, the Journal publishes articles on all aspects of ecclesiastical law.


Members receive the Ecclesiastical Law Journal and are eligible to attend the Society’s conferences and other events.

“Being a member of the ELS has helped me as a chancellor, as a lawyer, and as a Christian.”

Judge Stephen Eyre, QC
