A month after resigning as Boston archbishop over his handling of clerical sex-abuse cases, Cardinal Bernard Law has agreed to be interviewed by a special church panel that is investigating the nationwide crisis.

The National Review Board, a group of 13 lay Catholics charged by the U.S. bishops with monitoring the hierarchy's response to the scandals, said yesterday Law agreed to meet with members in late February or early March.

Board members plan to interview as many as 100 people, including other bishops, and issue a report next year on what caused the crisis.
