Saint Paul University continues its webinar series for the upcoming 2018-2019 academic year. The webinar series is a joint endeavor among the Saint Paul University’s Faculty of Canon Law, the Centre for Canonical Services, and the Canadian Canon Law Society. For a full overview of all planned webinars, please download a flyer here.

The next webinar will be held on March 13, 2019 from 2:00pm to 3:00pm EST. The webinar will feature Prof. Valère Nkouaya Mbandji, S.J., who will address” The Preliminary Investigation in the Penal Investigation: From An Allegation of A Delict to the Decree Initiating the Penal Process.”

This webinar, by means of a concrete example, will render more “visible” the actions to be taken in case of an allegation of a delict. It will shed light on the notitia criminis, the decree which opens the preliminary investigation (c. 1719); the delegation of someone to inquire; the good name and the rights of the person against whom the allegation is made (cc. 220, 1717, §2; 1468, §2 CCEO); the gathering of preliminary facts and statements; the decree which closes the preliminary investigation; and the decree which opens the penal process.

Please note: The webinar will be offered in English, and there is no cost to participate.
