Membership of the ELS

Wednesday, 18 July 2018

A message from the Ecclesiastical Law Society (ELS):

Dear Friends, 

As a former Registry Clerk (and now working for the DAC in Southwark Diocese), and as part of the Ecclesiastical Law Society's Committee, I commend to you the membership of the ELS. The Society's Chairman, Mark Hill QC, outlines in his message below some of the key benefits of being a member. Please also see the attached flyer. 

Having previously worked in the same Registry Clerk role as yourselves, I would encourage you to consider joining so as to take advantage of the opportunities for networking and professional development it offers, as well as the resources in areas of work with which you will be involved in your roles day-by-day, such as the prestigious Ecclesiastical Law Journal.  In recent years the ELS has had an increasing involvement in delivering training to parishes and dioceses as well as running events which are to support those who deliver such training.

Please do feel free to email the Society's Administrator Andy Male with any questions about this: 

Thank you.
