Ranjan Agarwal Represents Public Interest Groups in Prostitution Challenge
June 25, 2009
In the article, "Religious Groups Seek Standing at Prostitution Challenge," Kirk Makin examines the preliminary attempt made by two religious groups and one conservative women's group to participate in a case launched by three sex trade activists aimed at challenging the constitutionality of Canada's prostitution laws. As stated by Ranjan Agarwal, while representing REAL Women of Canada, the Catholic Civil Rights League, and Christian Legal Fellowship, "If this forum is to be the way that laws live and die in our society... the courts should welcome intervention of groups who represent a broad number of Canadians and can give assistance to the court." The case is scheduled to be heard later this fall.
