I have s vague recollection of some rule that said the Junior Warden of a lodge was to be supplied with a copy of the Constitution and Laws. However, I can't find any mention of it in the lawbook. Am I hallucinating?

Went to the Grand Lodge and bought a copy on a thumb drive, then loaded that to my laptop, Kindle, and cell phone... ;-)

The Lodge has a printed version that we use for general reference, but it's been much easier for me to use and to study, the PDF version.


There's a PDF version now? I'll have to get one of those some day for the search function alone.

I had to reach way back in the dim recesses of my memory for this one, but I believe that the JW is traditionally responsible prosecuting the accused at Masonic trials.

Bro. Tom- I'm not sure where in the Law it is found, but if your Secretary requests a lawbook & states that it is for the newly-installed JW, the Grand Secretary will send it without charge.

I have the CA Masonic code and NM Constitution and By-laws in iBooks on my phone... very handy. Both Monitors, as well.

Texas has an electronic version too. At least from 2010. Think it usually get's updated every 2-3 years as far as I know.

I had a 2003 PDF of a Texas version that also contained the GM Notes on Decisions. Very helpful to have the questions and answers on what they were thinking
