Legal Opinions Concerning the Church of England is a comprehensive guide to the advice of the Legal Advisory Commission of the General Synod on a wide range of issues: pastoral, liturgical, practical, financial and administrative matters covering the essentials of parish, diocesan and national church life and frequently occurring questions.
The Commission gives legal advice to the General Synod, the Church Commissioners, diocesan registrars, chancellors, and other clerical and lay officers such as archdeacons and diocesan secretaries, and this volume is an indispensable reference work for them and for all practitioners and students of ecclesiastical law.
