Specialisation diplomas

The School of Canon Law offers three diplomas of specialization in the field of Canon Marriage Law. These are degrees of the University of Navarra, which are aimed at people from any country, especially those who collaborate with the ecclesiastical courts or work in counseling for marriages and families. It intends to transmit in brief a clear and deep knowledge of the attention and accompaniment in the crisis of marital cohabitation and -when it is not enough- of the judicial process, so that it can be an effective means in the protection of the right of the faithful to a just resolution, as Pope Francis insistently reminds us.

Three different diplomas are presented: the Diploma of specialization in Marriage Law and Canon Procedural Law; the Diploma of specialization in Mediation and Conflict Prevention and the Diploma of specialization in Canon Jurisprudence and Procedural Praxis (taking for granted the substantive marriage law). Although the three diplomas have some common subjects, each of them is completely independent.

It includes subjects of a fundamental nature, together with others of a more immediately practical or technical nature. The aim is to prevent and help to resolve complicated circumstances in the field of marriage, and to find a correct legal grade of marital situations. At the same time, the aim is to help develop practical skills for the application of justice (and for the corresponding pastoral accompaniment), in each concrete case and without delay. 

The Diploma takes place every year, from January to June. In principle, it is carried out in two years, dividing the subjects (3 and 3), to facilitate the academic load. apply for However, if any student wishes to take the entire diploma in a single year, from February 15 to March 15, an extension of enrollment for the three subjects planned for the second year could be made from February 15 to March 15.
