Run for Stipends: „There's no way to far for us to support our students.“

This year again the Faculty of Catholic Theology engages in literally actively raising stipends for Theology students. We will again arrange the Run for Stipends: „There's no way to far for us to support our students.“ The large number of Faculty staff members who joined the run last year shows that we are on the right way and that taking the trouble (and the pain) is worth it.
5 or 21 kilometers - the sponsors decide, how much effort they want to see for their contribution. Every donation is a good start. We welcome every contribution.

Comments on Canon Law topics in everyday media coverage

"Are Canon Law topics relevant in everyday media coverage?" This is the main focus of our study "Canon Law and its Reception in the Media". Aspects of Canon Law - sometimes well hidden - can be found in the news about the Church and Church politics. Besides our study, in which we search for Canon Law topics in selected television news programmes covering the period 2010, we commment on actual media coverage that relates to Canon Law. You can find the comments on our project website. Canon Lawyers and people interested in that field are welcome to hand in comments on newsworthy media events with regard to Canon Law to be placed on our website.
