OBA Criminal Justice | Original Program Date: February 8, 2020

Criminal cases frequently involve multi-faceted legal issues. Whether a seemingly straightforward sexual assault case, or a homicide, Crown and defence counsel often wrestle with disclosure problems, complex evidentiary issues, and various ethical and strategic considerations.

In bringing a s. 276 or 278 application, what is the defence obliged to put before the Court? What is the Crown obliged to disclose to the defence? How should the Crown prepare vulnerable or “uncooperative” complainants and witnesses, and what are the boundaries of examination-in-chief and cross-examination?

Join us as our exceptional faculty take us through a complex human trafficking case covering these areas and many more, including case law in a post-Jordan world. Don’t miss our annual Institute program, featuring our unique fact pattern presented in movie-format, and a wealth of written materials prepared especially for this event.
