Conference at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross
“The judicial process requires well-balanced people, dedicated and technically well prepared.” “The application of administrative penalties should respect the essential elements of due process.” These two sentences sum up the conclusions of the conference on “The Penal Process and the Protection of Personal Rights in Canon Law,” organized by the School of Canon Law of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, which took place in Rome on March 25 and 26.
Participating in the conference, among others, was Msgr. Joaquin Llobell, professor of Procedural Law at the University of the Holy Cross; Professor Carlo Gullo, a jurist on the Rota; Professor Kenneth Pennington from the Catholic University of America; and Msgr. Velasio De Paolis, C.S., Secretary of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signature. The work of the conference concluded with a round table that discussed experiences in the application of norms and sanctions in recent judicial cases.
