The presentation of diplomas included a lecture by Mr. Carlos López Segovia, vice-secretary of the Spanish Episcopal Conference, "The structural and organizational diversity of the entities of the Catholic Church". During his presentation, Mr. López Segovia recalled that it was Sinibaldo dei Fieschi, the future Pope Innocent IV, who introduced the concept of juridical person without which the modern legislative framework would not exist. The multiplicity of entities that are part of the Church is very wide, as López Segovia pointed out, and from them, different degrees and forms of relationship are derived; López Segovia listed from dioceses, to non-territorial jurisdictions, religious orders, tertiary orders or foundations....A multiplicity that makes "it is not easy to classify them" as the vice-secretary of the EEC, who also stressed that "the law follows life, so it is very important to know the Church and canon law so that the Church is not treated as just another company". In this sense, he concluded, "knowing the Church allows us to serve better".

In any case, as López Segovia emphasized, "the Church cannot be separated from the Law, nor can the juridical order of the Church be separated from what is human nature, the faithful, who make up the Church. Only by understanding how the Church works can we enter into our Church, which lives and is inserted, with its juridical order, in other civil juridical orders".

On behalf of the students, Anastasio Gómez thanked the organizers, teachers and developers who made this training possible and encouraged them to consider the possibility that this training could become a master's degree.
