Trinity Western University Update

Finally, it has been announced that the Supreme Court of Canada will hear the appeals concerning whether law societies can be forced to accredit Trinity Western University's potential law school despite the university's discriminatory practices. I will be reading as many court documents as I can find. I imagine there will be a ton of intervenors.

The nature of the case is interesting. The BC law society lost at both court levels while the Ontario law society won. They operate with different statutes. The BC law society says the university's practices violate the equality rights of a bunch of different people, while the Ontario society focused only on members of the LGBTQ community. I anticipate that the Supreme Court decision will be very long.
