A Christian university hoping to open a new law school has asked a judge to overturn a decision by the Law Society of British Columbia to refuse accreditation to its graduates. The society argues a so-called community covenant banning students of Trinity Western University from having sex outside of heterosexual marriage is discriminatory. Law school spokesman Earl Phillips says the case is about whether there is room in Canada for religious minorities to exercise their beliefs. (The school was slated to open in the fall of 2016, but Phillips says even if the outcome in court is favourable the process will be delayed at least two years.)
