Justice Centre lawyer Glenn Blackett discusses a professional development course, The Path, forced on all Alberta lawyers by the provincial Law Society. Members had to take course on indigenous culture or risk losing their licence to practice.
DESCRIPTION OF FULL EPISODE
Kevin is joined by Justice Centre lawyer Glenn Blackett who discusses his yet-to-be-published paper about the Law Society of Alberta. Last year, the LSA forced its members, on penalty of losing their ability to practice law, to take a course on indigenous culture. Glenn describes the problems he sees with this, and says this is a sign of institutional capture. He draws parallels between the LSA re-education and what is happening to Jordan Peterson in Ontario.
