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.
