Dr Ed Peters: Msgr. Cormac Burke's canon law website

For those of us who have more than a passing interest in Canon Law, this looks to be great news:
Msgr. [Cormac] Burke is that unusual kind of man who has maintained extensive scholarly output while performing Church work at the highest levels; in him, we have the chance to see how a canonical judge (one with a common law formation at that) adjudicates actual cases, and how the same man reflects on those issues as an academic. Thus, his decision to launch a personal website, featuring many of his books, articles, and judicial sentences, is very exciting news. His materials (often entire works) are now available in several languages.
Read Dr. Peters' overview of retired Rotal Judge, Msgr. Cormac Burke’s, important new canon law website here.
