Notice to the Profession
October 16, 2014

On September 26, 2014 the Benchers resolved to conduct a referendum of all members on the issue of the proposed law school at Trinity Western University. Referendum ballots were mailed early last week to all Law Society members on the official voters list.

The referendum question is:

"Resolved that the Benchers implement the resolution of the members passed at the special general meeting of the Law Society held on June 10, 2014, and declare that the proposed law school at Trinity Western University is not an approved faculty of law for the purpose of the Law Society's admissions program."

Referendum ballots must be completed and returned to the Law Society by 5 pm on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 to be counted. The counting will be done under the supervision of two independent scrutineers on Thursday, October 30; results will be published on the Law Society website later that day.

If you have not received your ballot or if you have any questions about the referendum, please email the Law Society at
