Collaboration in offering the Licentiate in Canon Law (JCL)

 

We are pleased to announce collaboration between Saint Paul University (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) and Saint Patrick’s College (Maynooth, Co. Kildare, Ireland) in offering the Licentiate in Canon Law (JCL). We are prepared to begin this collaboration during the Fall Session 2017 if there is sufficient interest among students.

This collaboration results in the Licentiate in Canon Law (JCL) degree from Saint Paul University bestowed upon students who pursue courses at a distance and on the campus of Saint Patrick's College over a period of four years. Over these four years, students take distance education courses during the Fall Session and Winter Session, and then a two-week intensive course during the Spring/Summer Session (late July/early August) on the campus of Saint Patrick College.

The JCL degree consists of 75 credits, 66 of which are from compulsory courses and 9 of which are from optional courses. The JCL curriculum is governed by Sapientia Christiana (15 April 1979) and subsequent legislation and norms of the Holy See. The curriculum provides a solid historical and theoretical basis for all current canonical legislation of the Latin Church, and emphasizes the pastoral application of this law.

All students will simultaneously receive the civil diploma of Master of Canon Law (MCL), granted jointly by Saint Paul University and the University of Ottawa (with which Saint Paul University has been federated since 1965).
