This course will introduce people to the annulment process, in which people (already civilly divorced) approach the Tribunal and inquire about the possibility of receiving a declaration of nullity.  Starting with a theological foundation for the Tribunal's ministry, this course will then explore the parts of a formal trial, introduce terms used, and offer guidance for working with Tribunal staff who are working on the cases.  It also includes a sample brief, so people can see the personal aspects of the final report.  

This course will teach auditors and others how to use the compiled testimony to write a brief for the Court.  It includes references to the applicable canons, as well as the individuals' testimonies and any expert (peritus) statements.  It cites and addresses the concerns (Animadversions) of the Defender of the Bond, and ends by formulating and stating the argument.
