(Globe and Mail) B.C.'s Minister of Advanced Education has revoked his consent for the proposed law school at Trinity Western University.
Amrik Virk had sent a letter to TWU president Bob Kuhn last month indicating that he was reconsidering his consent. The university had launched legal challenges against several Canadian law societies that chose not to grant accreditation to the school's graduates, Mr. Virk noted in his letter, and it was unlikely those court actions would be completed before the three-year expiration date of the conditional consent he granted on Dec. 18.
"Obviously, the ability of graduates to practise in B.C. is a relevant consideration in whether you grant consent for a program," Mr. Virk told the Globe and Mail in a November interview.
