Censoring of a defence counsel
The CLA condemns the TDSB’s irresponsible and ignorant position in refusing to promote the “A Room of Your Own” book club event featuring defence counsel Marie Henein’s memoire, Nothing But The Truth. The TDSB should be eager to educate students on the important work criminal defence lawyers do and our critical role in a constitutional democracy. The view that this knowledge is somehow unsuitable for students is shocking and misguided. The CLA stands with Marie Henein and all the little girls out there who aspire to join our ranks as criminal defence lawyers.
