TWU is a private Christian school that is opening a law school. The law school has been accredited by B.C., a move being challenged in the courts.
But in addition to being accredited, TWU also had to get every provincial law society to agree that it would recognize a degree from its new law school.
TWU has an odious requirement that a student must sign a covenant agreeing, among other things, never to have sex except in a HETEROSEXUAL marriage. BC's law society said it would recognize TWU law degrees notwithstanding the discriminatory covenant; the law societies of Ontario and Nova Scotia said no.
Read an excellent analysis by Jamie McLaren, one of the Benchers who voted against recognizing TWU degrees.
Lawyers: registration can be done on a 'fast track' (see the Law Society website); the Vancouver venue is the Convention Centre. Meeting starts at noon; secret ballot voting is open till 6 pm.
