Law school launches police accountability and complaints program

KIRK MAKIN

"The University of Windsor law school will launch a program next month aimed at enhancing police accountability and reducing the use of racial profiling.

In what is believed to be the first program of its kind, the school will provide advice about racial profiling and police oversight to government, public interest organizations, community groups - and police forces themselves.

It will also advise civilians who want to lodge complaints regarding police conduct."

I'd like to see lawyers accountable when acting as an executor (manager) for a will. Once a BC lawyer acts as a "manager" of a will, they are not accountable to the BC Legal Society. That LOOP HOLE is extremely disgusting AND it should be mandatory law that any and all potential persons needing an executor is aware of this "loop hole"!!
