The committee assists the bishops, both individually and collectively, by providing direction for the Conference in the ongoing implementation of the 1983 Code of Canon Law and 1990 Code of Canons for the Eastern Churches and in the interpretation of particular law issued by the Conference. The committee also addresses issues from a canonical perspective related to the pastoral practices (discipline) of the Church, and it provides a forum wherein the Conference offers a possible means for the resolution of disputes or disagreements that occasionally arise between or with regard to dioceses. The committee further attends to issues concerning relations between Eastern and Latin churches.
This mandate includes the following areas of responsibility: Canonical affairs, relations between Eastern and Latin Churches, boundaries of dioceses and provinces, selection of bishops, conciliation and arbitration, diocesan financial reports, and canonical questions concerning pastoral practices.
