Accessus a term in canon law, signifying thee right which a clerk might have at some future time in a benefice. The pope occasionally gave the right of accessus to a grantee affected by some temporary or personal incapacity, such as defect in age. In such a case the pope commits the benefice to a third party to hold until the person, cum jure accessus arrived at the proper age. The accessus was abolished by the Council of Trent.
