Notice to the Public re interventions

Just a quick update let you know that the CALL Council has unanimously accepted the recommendation of the National Labour Rights Committee (NLRC) of CALL to retain counsel and seek to intervene in the application for Judicial Review bring brought by Trinity Western University against the decision of the Law Society of Upper Canada to decline to accredit the TWU proposed law school. The notice to potential intervenors is attached for your information. 

We have retained Susan Ursel from Ursel, Phillips, Fellows, Hopkinson LLP to represent us on this matter. The Court has directed that all applications for intervention will be heard in Toronto on September 3, 2014 and I will send further reports to the membership as this matter progresses. 

I also wanted to remind you that there are opportunities to participate in CALL / ACAMS throughout the year. For example, if you would like to help the conference agenda committee plan the program for the next annual conference, send a quick email to me or to Craig Flood so that we can include you when those discussions begin in September. You can also contact the Chairs of any of the other committees if you are interested in getting more involved in them. 

If you become aware of any litigation, legislative changes or policy issues that you feel CALL should consider getting involved in, please bring it to the attention of any of the NLRC members or myself for consideration by the committee which sits as needed, including on an urgent basis. As well, it would be helpful to have a ready list of lawyers and/or law firms who are willing to represent CALL /  ACAMS as matters that require representation arise. Please send an email to Melissa Kronick if you or your firm is willing to be considered for future matters.
