More on Trinity Western University's proposed Law School

For earlier posts on TWU, click here.

Ottawa law Profs Jena McGill, Angela Cameron & others wrote for the National Post… Why Trinity Western University should not have a law school.

The crux of the issue is how the discrimination and institutional environment at TWU impacts the ability of the school to teach law. In order to permit entry into a provincial or territorial law society (as determined by the Federation), the law degree program must meet national standards in its curriculum. Those standards require critical thinking about ethical and legal issues. No person can truly think critically from one pre-determined lens, in this case, a lens mandated by TWU.

The Post has otherwise been publishing a number of pieces arguing the other side.  Here, from Don Hutchinson vice-president and general legal counsel with The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, here, from NP Columnist Johnathan Kay and here a response to McGill, Cameron et al, from Barbara Kay.

 

 

Three Hip-Hop Scholars Talk About Combatting Homophobia via COLORLINES

I’m posting this link because:

1) i know i’m not the only legal/feminist/scholar who loves hip hop and wonders what to do/say/hear in light of the homophobia and misogyny which appear in lyrics “from time to time”. Right? I’m not the only one interested in the latest set of sparks on this front, right? You can tell me.

2) i like the set up of the article – three scholars, one pretty open question, and about teaching. Do you like it? Can we do it here (ifls)? What topic? Who? Send me your ideas, or try the comment section.
