OBA Criminal Justice PROGRAM
 | 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM (ET)

In late June, the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) released its reasons in R. v. Chouhan, concluding that the abolition of peremptory challenges was constitutional. After pandemic-related delays, jury trials are now resuming. Ensure you are ready by getting up to speed on the impact of the Chouhan decision and other recent caselaw and legislative changes for jury selection with this valuable program.

Our expert panel will share helpful insights and the most recent guidance from the courts on:

  • Judicial interpretation of jury selection changes brought into effect by Bill C-75, including the SCC’s decision in R. v. Chouhan
  • When it is appropriate to stand aside potential jurors
  • Navigating challenges for cause
  • Other possible jury challenges
  • How far does the trial judge’s inherent jurisdiction extend?
