Irwin Cotler receives human rights award

    And who are the Law Society representatives to decide on human rights, ethics and morality? Hippocrates? They still can't decide on the definition of "public interest".

    This place should be governed by Government.

    Prof. Cotler is a most deserving 1st recipient of LSUC's human rights award. Through his decades of efforts in Canada and internationally (e.g. the RSA, FSU, Argentina & Egypt), he has embodied our highest aspirations for civil justice and the preservation of human dignity. He'll definitely be a hard act to follow, for LSUC's next award winner!
