The theme for the 2013 convention, “Celebrating 75 Years: Honoring the Past, Building the Future,” provided the groundwork for three major addresses: “The Past as Prologue: A Consideration of Canon Law in the United States” by Most Reverend John J. Myers; “Response to and Prevention of Clerical Misconduct: Current Praxis,” by Most Reverend Charles J. Scicluna; and “The Interaction of Theology, Law, and Life from the Perspective of Bishops,” by Most Reverend Brian Dunn.

Proceedings of the Canon Law Society of America publish the texts of addresses, seminars, and reports presented at the annual CLSA convention. The entries of each number represent a wide variety of canonical issues. Tribunal statistics for the previous calendar year are also included.
