An Index of L&RUK Posts – Consistory Court Judgments

Links to posts on consistory court judgments

This index provides links to posts on L&RUK which relate to consistory court judgments. It is in two sections – Consistory court analysis, with case notes and commentaries, and Judgments, Decisions and Determinations which relate to specific topic areas for 2012 to present*.

Other L&RUK indexes include those on marriage legislation, reduction of carbon emissions, and coronavirus COVID-19 legislation and guidance. A further post based upon our occasional feature “Recent queries and comment”, which appeared between the round-up of 13 August 2017 and February 2020 is in preparation.

Judgments, Decisions and Determinations

In some years, for certain categories no judgments were reviewed. Although some relate specifically to the removal and replacement of pews, and are listed as such, this is often a consideration of other judgments on reordering and building works. The links for 2021 are provided on a month-by-month basis, and will be collated at the end of the year.

2021 (all areas)

2012 to 2020

At the end of 2018, the Ecclesiastical Law Association web site was rebuilt using a more up-to-date framework; however, one consequence was that it is no longer practicable for us to include direct links to the site; from September 2018, therefore, the L&RUK site has held copies of all new judgments reviewed; for cases prior to this date, these can be accessed directly from the ELA web site.

This post was last updated on 25 June 2021 at 13:25, and includes links to judgments up to and including those reported the end of May 2021.
