In circumstances where their membership numbers were dwindling, a religious institute affiliated with the Catholic Church sought my advice about how they should structure their relationships with members who wish to make commitments to their institute as associates but not full members.
Catholic religious institutes enjoy autonomous self-government and giving advice required detailed knowledge of church structures, church governance and Catholic canon law.
I was able to detail the options available and offer solutions best suited to the client in this highly specialised area of practice.
