LAW SOCIETY MANDATORY DIRECTIVE – LSUC statement of principles faces some backlash | Law Times
The Law Society (of Ontario?) now “requires all licensed lawyers and paralegals to write a statement of principles acknowledging their obligation to promote equality, diversity and inclusion.” What’s strange is that it “is nothing more than the obligation lawyers have already.” It’s causing quite an issue.
Bencher Joe Groia has also submitted a motion asking Convocation to reconsider the statement of principles and requesting that conscientious objectors be exempt from the requirement.
