TWU law school given OK from law societies federation

December 18, 2013

Trinity Western University has announced that its proposed law school has been approved by the Federation of Law Societies of Canada. The proposal has stirred controversy from many people due to a TWU covenant requiring all students, staff and faculty to abstain from “sexual intimacy that violates the sacredness of marriage between a man and a woman.” TWU President Bob Kuhn, however, says “We recognize that there has been considerable debate with respect to the fact that TWU is a faith-based university. Now that the Federation has approved the program, we can move on from that debate and build an excellent law school to serve the Canadian public.” TWU is still awaiting a response from the BC Ministry of Advanced Education. Along with courses comparable to other Canadian law schools, the TWU School of Law would offer unique courses in 2 areas of specialization: charities/not-for-profit law and entrepreneurial law.
