Trinity Western Denied Law School Accreditation with Deina Warren - 6CR #29

September 7, 2018

Trinity Western University lost their appeal for law school accreditation by the Supreme Court of Canada on the basis that the school's community covenant denied equal access to the legal profession. Deina Warren acted as co-counsel with Derek Ross for the intervener Christian Legal Fellowship in this appeal. Deina joins Darnell & Joel to discuss this case. The conversation covers the following:

  • Trinity Western's Community Covenant
  • Historical context for getting to the supreme court
  • 2001 Court Case for Teacher's College Accreditation re: Covenant
  • Unprecendent behaviour by the Supreme Court and its representatives during the case
  • The law being used as a sword instead of a shield
