What are the Law Society’s obligations with respect to the Ontario Human Rights Code when deciding whether to accredit Trinity Western University’s proposed law school?

The proposal is controversial due to TWU’s requirement that students, faculty and staff sign a Covenant which prohibits, among other things, “sexual intimacy that violates the sacredness of marriage between a man and a woman.”  The Benchers of the Law Society vote on the accreditation decision on April 24.
