Canon Law is a set of ordinances and regulations made by ecclesiastical authority (i.e., Church leadership), for the government of a Christian organization or church and its members. It is the internal ecclesiastical law, or operational policy, governing the Catholic Church (both the Latin Church and the Eastern Catholic Churches), the Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox churches, and the individual national churches within the Anglican Communion.

The Law Library has an extensive Canon Law Collection, containing periodicals, primary, and secondary materials.
