EFC WRITES LAW SOCIETY IN NEW BRUNSWICK ABOUT TRINITY WESTERN
New Brunswick is the fourth province to debate whether or not it will accept graduates of a Christian law school into the practice of law. The EFC sent a letter in support of Trinity Western University’s proposed school of law to the Law Society of New Brunswick. The letter challenges the LSNB’s compliance with Chapter 21 of its own Rules of Professional Conduct should it decide not to accept TWU law grads.
