A basic look at their site and it should be pretty obvious it's not a real company. It looks good at first glance but the whole thing is vague as hell and offers a bunch of things (including online courses) but only lets you email them.

74% of voters voted against TWU being approved

Trinity Western University: proposed law school | The Law Society of British Columbia

Quote:
In a referendum conducted in October, a total of 5,951 BC lawyers (74%) voted in favour and 2,088 (26%) against a resolution declaring that the proposed law school at Trinity Western University is not an approved faculty of law for the purpose of the Law Society's admission program.

So the vote ended up being 74.02662% in favour of denying accreditation. If I didn't vote, it would've been 74.02339%. Glad my vote made such a big difference!

I don't get what the hoopla is.............just lawyers and judges. What I can't believe is TWU has an education program.

That, to me, is more of a concern. Can't believe the BCTF just let it happen.

I guess it's because shit happens no matter what........ religious teachers pushing their faith in class. It happens.


Case in point - my daughter was in grade four, I believe. Spelling list for the week is given out. Standard 16 words from spellar and 4 words the teacher picks out. One of them is an obscure word that maybe 5 out of ten thousand normal people would recognize or come across. It's a biblical term.......... "Okay, kids.......... mkay (a la South Park)... use this word in a sentence. If you don't know the word, look it up. "jesus loves me, yes he does... for the bible tells me so." Music/band teacher hands out nothing but non-secular music. You get the idea. Some are good at keeping it subtle, but some are pretty blatant with the shit. Anyway, waaaay off topic.

It's binding, so yeah, I'm pretty sure they have to follow it. The meeting tomorrow, not sure. You're probably right, just to formalize the whole thing.

The referendum was binding so the Benchers will ratify it whether they like it or not.

Take that TWU.

Trinity Western law school future in doubt after B.C. Law Society rejection

Quote:
The president of Trinity Western University says he is uncertain if the new law school will open as scheduled in 2016 following the recent vote by the B.C. Law Society members to reject the faith-based institution.

TWU president Bob Kuhn expressed his frustration with the recent vote as he left a ratification meeting at the law society on Friday morning.

"They had to choose between the principles upon which they made the initial decision and the popularity of that decision among lawyers in the province," says Kuhn.

"We're disappointed of course they chose the latter. But that's the reality of people in an elected position."

British Columbia is now the third province, after Ontario and Nova Scotia, to officially reject the university's law school.

Kuhn says it's not clear whether the Christian university will move ahead with its 2016 opening date, and the school will decide in the coming weeks whether to file a judicial review.

The board members of the B.C. Law Society voted 25 to one with four abstentions to ratify the results of a referendum announced yesterday rejecting the accreditation of a Trinity Western University's law school.

More than 8,000 of the society's 13,530 members voted earlier this month in a special referendum to overturn the board's decision earlier this year to accredit the faith-based law school.

Critics oppose the new law school's accreditation because Trinity Western students must sign a Christian covenant that states sexual relations are to be confined within the bounds of a marriage between a man and a woman.

Victoria lawyer Michael Mulligan, whose petition triggered two law society referendum on the issue, says the school's policy is discriminatory against people in LGBTQ relationships.

"The policies of this university are inconsistent with core values of legal profession insofar that this university continues to dispel or expel students for their private sexual activities," said Mulligan.

The Law Society of Upper Canada in Ontario has voted against approving the law school and the Nova Scotia Barristers' Society has granted conditional acceptance but only if the school changes the covenant for law students or allows them to opt out.

Trinity Western is legally challenging those decisions in court, arguing they have a right to religious freedom.

Just to let you guys know, I don't mind christianity or christians........ hell, some of my best friends are christians. They pray for my salvation every day. They love me and want me to see the light. I tell them, "Whatever. You can pray for me all you want." They tell me there is still hope for me. Save me, Glow - help me see the light!

I will never forget being forced to say the lord's prayer every day at school and singing the "jesus loves me," song.

Legal challenges to Trinity Western's proposed law school gave B.C. minister second thoughts - The Globe and Mail

had a debate in class about this... surprisingly, like 80% of the students were FOR the accreditation

Too bad your average person doesn't really understand the intricacies of the law and the specific reasons for and against accreditation. Hell, I'm a lawyer and I don't understand all of it.
