"Watching the Detectives" 

Feb. 9, 2019
Toronto ON

OBA Criminal Justice |
9:00 AM to 4:30 PM

Every criminal case involves a police and citizen encounter. With the ability to conduct investigative detentions, searches of people, places and property, and to make arrests, police officers possess a toolbox of extensive powers. However, along with these powers come very hefty obligations. When does investigative questioning go from lawful to arbitrary? Under what circumstances are officers entitled to withhold evidence from accused and their counsel, and when does a search become unreasonable?

Understanding the full nature, scope and limits of police power is essential for Crown and criminal defence counsel alike. Our exceptional faculty of appellate and trial judges, and senior Crown and defence counsel, will answer these questions and many more. Join us to explore the latest developments surrounding the exercise of police powers.

Register now for this not-to-be missed program, which will feature our unique Institute movie and a wealth of papers written especially for this event.
