CBA Criminal Justice Conference

The Pre-Trial Motion Puzzle

 Agenda | PDF Registration Form

A successful pre-criminal trial motion can mean the difference between a withdrawal of charges and a guilty verdict at the end of a months-long trial. Whether you prosecute or defend criminal matters, you need to be versed in the many – often complex – pre-trial motions available to you and your client.

Our ever-popular fact scenario movie format will set out a hypothetical, and our panels of judges and Crown and defence counsel from across Canada will cover the various pre-trial motions that can arise in a criminal trial and how best to conduct them.

Join us in Vancouver this spring for insight from some of the country’s foremost criminal law experts and network with your peers from across the country.

Topics we’re planning to cover include:

  • Severance Motions
  • Delay Motions
  • Vukelich Motions
  • Preparing Witnesses for Pre-trial Motions
  • Hearsay Motions
  • Similar Fact Motions
  • Corbett Applications
  • Bail Applications


As well as covering substantive and procedural law, each session will have a segment devoted to professional ethics and/or practice management.
