Update: Trinity Western University Litigation

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Trinity Western University  (TWU) has filed for judicial review of the Law Society of Upper Canada's decision not to accredit their graduates due to TWU's discriminatory Covenant. The Divisional Court hearing is scheduled for the first week of June, 2015.

Here you will find the Applicant's Factum (Trinity Western University) and the  Factum of the Respondent (The Law Society of Upper Canada).

In their paper UOttawa law alumni Angela Chaisson, and Professors Angela Cameron and Jena McGill argue that the decisions by LSUC  not to accredit TWU law degrees are correct in law, and will withstand any legal challenge by TWU. The relevant legal principles governing the Societies’ decisions on accreditation required the Societies to act in the public interest, and in accordance with Charter values. The public interest and the Charter required the Societies to reject TWU unless and until the removal of the mandatory, discriminatory Covenant. These arguments are reflected in the Respondent's factum.
