On February 28, a notice of motion was tabled indicating that LSBC Benchers will consider a resolution regarding the proposed Faculty of Law at Trinity Western University.
The notice of motion comes after both a preliminary approval by the Federation of Law Societies of Canada, and an authorization to grant law degrees given to TWU by the BC provincial government. Final approval for a TWU faculty of law as “an approved faculty for the purpose of meeting the academic qualification requirement” now rests in the Benchers’ hands.
The April 11 meeting will be webcast to ensure that it is part of an open and transparent process. This will also allow more people to watch and listen than could be accommodated at the Law Society’s premises.
Submissions received by the Law Society prior to the March 3 deadline will be made available to TWU, and may also be made available on the Law Society’s website. Further details regarding both the submissions and the webcast registration should become available prior to April 11.
