Ideally, whether someone signs that "community covenant" or not doesn't exactly make them a good or bad lawyer. As someone who knows people who go to TWU, their "covenant" is similar to the Terms of Service you hit "Yes" on when you power up a new phone or computer for the first time - largely ignored and is commonly seen as a formality.

If you don't want a lawyer that graduated from TWU, it's your choice not to have one. It's also your decision not to go to TWU and to another school whose moral/ethical/lifestyle code better aligns with your own. Moreover, TWU is a private university anyway, and as long as a significant part of my tax dollars doesn't contribute to the spread of ignorance and bigotry, and if I don't have to consciously rely on their lawyers in my personal life, they can do what they want. It's that simple.

Good.

I'll preface this comment with the fact that I've never stepped foot in a church and hold no religious beliefs. I hate it when beliefs are forced down anyone's throat, religious or not. Forcing a private religious entity to go against their own beliefs is just as ridiculous as forcing religious practices in public institutions (like prayer in school, for example).

This overzealous SJWism is getting/has gotten completely out of hand.

While it is true, people can choose not to hire TWU lawyers, I could see this being an issue should any of them be made a judge. In certain cases, it would be difficult to maintain an illusion of impartiality given their credentials.

It's a tough call because it's two conflicting charter rights, but the ruling basically comes down to what a bunch of us have already been saying:

"If you don't agree with the covenant, don't go to TWU. Plenty of other law schools out there"

Is being accredited by a Law Society a statutory right?

It happens already in the highest courts in the US.

Supreme Court Justices are hand picked based on their historical rulings and current beliefs.

I'm sure they are handpicked in the Canada as well. But just like everyone else, I find US politics to be more entertaining.

Can the Law Society deny accreditation to an organization based on the religious beliefs of that organization?
