The Supreme Court of Canada has granted the Law Society of British Columbia leave to appeal the decision of the BC Court of Appeal in Trinity Western University v. The Law Society of British Columbia. This case raises important issues on the intersection between conflicting Charter rights that should be settled by Canada's highest court.

As the case remains before the court, we are not able to say anything further at this time. We have, however, articulated our position on this matter in the past, and all our materials are available on our TWU web page.
