TWU awarded $70,000 in legal costs from NS Barristers’ Society

April 24, 2015

The Nova Scotia Supreme Court has ordered the NS Barristers’ Society to pay $70,000 in legal costs to Trinity Western University. The Supreme Court ruled in January that the Barristers’ Society could not deny accreditation to graduates of TWU’s proposed law program. TWU was asking for $120,000 in legal fee reimbursement. The NS Barristers’ Society plans to appeal the January verdict, citing a mandate to protect the public and to promote equality in the administration of justice. CBC
