Trinity Western University is in court in Nova Scotia Wednesday morning, fighting to allow graduates of its controverisal school of law to work in the province.
The Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society is arguing the school’s covenant, forbidding sex outside the traditional marriage of a man and a woman, is discriminatory.
The Society has already lost a court battle and is appealing a Nova Scotia Supreme Court judge’s ruling, that it exceeded its authority in banning TWU grads from working in the province.
In court, the Barristers Society says the covenant means LGBTQ students aren’t being given equal opportunities at the university.
Wednesday is the first of three days of court proceedings.
Here in B.C., the Law Society is appealing a similar ruling.
It too doesn’t want to give TWU law school grads accreditation, due to the community covenant.
A date for that appeal has not been set yet.
