British Columbia revisits the decision to accredit Trinity Western University.
Wednesday, June 11, 2014
Members of the BC Law Society voted yesterday in favour of a motion that directs the Benchers of their Law Society to reverse an earlier decision accrediting Trinity Western University.
Trinity Western University (‘TWU’) is an evangelical Christian institution in Langley, British Columbia. TWU requires all faculty, staff and students to sign a “Community Covenant” promising to inter alia “abstain from sexual intimacy that violates the sacredness of marriage between a man and a woman.” Faculty, staff and students who violate the Covenant risk disciplinary measures, including expulsion and termination of employment.
