Canon Law regulates the internal ordering of the Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox and the Anglican Communion. Canon Law is amended and adopted by the legislative authority of the church, such as councils of bishops, individual bishops, the Pope for the Catholic Church, and the British Parliament for the Church of England. In South Africa Canon Law is an Amalgam of Roman-Dutch Civil Law and English Common Law, as well as the Customary Law. Bishops and church leaders should know how to respect and uphold Canon Law and the regulations of the church in all forms. Canon Law should be included in training of the clergy.
